About the author of this blog: Kathy Au Crosier

I have been busy as a recitalist, teacher, church and school organist in Hawaii where I have lived since 1973.  Some of you may remember that I used to play Burbank High’s Alma Mater at the end of every assembly, and that I played the organ for our Baccalaureate at the Starlight Bowl. I also accompanied a number of Burbank High’s choirs.  My husband was a fellow musician — we had been married for 37 years before he succumbed to pancreatic cancer in August 2014.  I have one grown son, Stephen, who is married and lives in North Hollywood, CA.

    Hi Kathy! I see many classmates that I went to school with while attending John Muir Junior High and Thomas Jefferson Elementary when growing up in Burbank…we moved to Orange County so I didn’t get a chance to go to BHS, but with this website, I am looking forward to sharing some fun memories with the Class of ’68!!

    Hi Kathy,
    mmm—let’s see; After a year at Valley J.C. in Van Nuys, I spent 2 years in the army. Went by in the blink of an eye. The went back to Valley J.C.—-this time, after completing, took a 6 month hitching/vagabonding trip through Europe (1973-74). Returning, tried both Cal Polys, loving SLO for 5 years! Finally with adventure calling, I moved to Mt Shasta in 1978, and have been there ever since. Built custom houses for 10 years, then —switch–into public education. Have been teaching since 1984 in a small country school, near Mt. Shasta. For fun, I snowboard, skateboard, hike in the high local mountains,mountainbike, travel and dive internationally, slalom waterski, and other miscellaneous antics. All for now, take care , Rog

    am terribly sorry for Roger’s loss. Nothing more devastating than losing a child, no matter what their age. I know when my step brother was killed in Vietnam my parents were never the same. Being in the medical field as long as I have I have seen so much loss and death to individuals of all ages. When I was director of Pediatrics at UCLA I saw much that saddened me almost everyday, but then again I also had the opportunity save many lives. After my time there I made the decision to never walk into my house from work with anything in my arms so I could hug my kids as they ran up to me. I have kept that habit throughout their lives and now that they are all grown and carrying on with their own lives I still have my arms empty when I first see them.

    I hope you are doing well Kathy and I have included you and I will include Roger in my prayers. My best to you all.
