Jason and Lindsay Bailey

Hey Lancers. It’s been nice to read up on everyone and it seems as though all is well.

After graduation, I moved to Cedar City and attended school at Southern Utah University. Following my freshman year, I was called to serve an LDS mission to Argentina. Upon returning, I went back to SUU where I met my beautiful wife, Lindsay. We were married in July of 2002 and lived in Cedar City until we both graduated from school in May of 2004. We then moved to Las Vegas (where Lindsay is from) and I began work at an ad agency, R&R Partners, and Lindsay began work at a law firm, ATMS Law.

Since we’ve been married, we’ve been able to accomplish some goals, travel a bit, and meet a lot of great people. We enjoy going to the movies, traveling, going out to the lake and visiting family and friends. We purchased a home in Las Vegas in April of 2005 and I have since returned to school to obtain my MBA from UNLV. I’m almost through the program and continue to work at R&R Partners.

On July 27, 2007, we had the joy of welcoming our first son, Gavin, to our family. Gavin was born with many health issues and challenges. Unfortunately, despite all the medical help provided to him, Gavin returned to the presence of our Heavenly Father on October 28, 2007. We miss him so much --- that sweet boy is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to us. We know that we are an eternal family and this brings much peace and comfort to us.

Hope all is well with everybody and we hope to see you at the 10.

Aimee (Lauber) and Mike Sizemore

Hi y’all!! Wow has it already been 10 years?!! Goodness how “time flies when you’re having fun!!” I have enjoyed reading what others have been up to. Well to catch up on my past…after graduation I worked @ Franklin Covey while attending SLCC for Fall semester and then decided to take some time off from school. I then began working full-time doing accounting for a local Salt Lake lumber company. During that time I played and hung out with friends, enjoying life. In December 2000 I decided to turn papers in to serve a mission. The following February I received my call; I would be going to the Belgium, Brussels mission but wouldn’t leave until the end of June 2001. It was one of the hardest decisions I had to make but knew it was what I needed at that time in my life. The mission started out rocky and of course trying to learn another language added that much more stress. I thought the 4 years of French I had taken in school would have helped but we covered all of that the first couple of weeks in the MTC. It wasn’t until fully immersed into the culture that the language came and I must say it is a beautiful one!! I served in Belgium, France and was able to see parts of the Netherlands as well. December 2002 is when I returned home just in time for Christmas. Now the big question…”what was next?” I decided to apply to BYU (I told myself I would never go there), funny how things work out differently than planned. I headed to Provo to start school, spring semester. I worked with an Anesthesiologist in a pain clinic where I was his radiology assistant and attended classes in the evening. I absolutely LOVED the medical field. It was while attending BYU that I met my hubby and love of my life, Mike. We were in the same ward and were introduced, formally, by Becky (Ferrin) Billings. Neither of us was looking for anything serious and became fast friends. That summer I traveled to Maryland, Washington DC and New Hampshire to visit friends and attend my mission president’s homecoming. While I was gone, we realized something had started and it was a little more than just friendship. When I got home Mike was waiting at the airport. “Surprise” he had a bouquet of flowers and yep, a ring. We were sealed in the Salt Lake temple in November 2003. After being married a little over a year, we decided to start a family and at the same time move to North Carolina. March 2005 we packed up and headed cross country. We have been here almost 3 years, it was rough at first but I love it here now. In September 2005 our son, Zachary, was born. He is the “life of the party” and such an enthusiastic little boy. He definitely keeps me active! In March 2007, Addison joined our family and she is just as energetic and active as her brother. She loves attention. They are the absolute joy of my life! I have taken a break from school but plan to start again in the fall to finish my Bachelors degree. Right now I am enjoying being a mom and the time I have to spend with my kids and Mike!!

Vicki (Cawley) & Guy Van Horn

After graduation, I began my college education at Utah State University. I started out as a Math major, but I didn't do so well with Calculus at 7:00 in the morning. So, I switched my major to Family and Human Development and that is what I graduated with in August 2001. In June of 2001, I met my future husband, Guy Van Horn, at USU. He was finishing his Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and graduated in December 2001. On August 15, 2001, I moved back home to West Valley for the free rent and to try and find a job that related to my degree. Well, I finally found a job in November at Fort Douglas working for the Army Reserve in their Education Center as a Test Examiner. It was a really great job and I met a lot of great people. Meanwhile, Guy and I continued a long distance relationship until we finally got married on September 25, 2002 in the Manti Temple. So, I quit my job and moved up to Logan where Guy had a job working for ICON designing treadmills. After living in Logan for a year, we moved into our brand new house in Nibley, just about 5 miles south of Logan. In September 2004, our daughter Amelia was born and I have been lucky enough to stay home with her and put my degree to use. We lived there for almost 2 years and then Guy accepted a job offer from Flowserve in Springville, so we moved to a basement apartment in Payson in June 2005. We lived in that apartment for a year while we were looking for a house. During our housing search, I became pregnant with our second daughter. We finally found a house in Springville and moved in less than a month before Ashley was born in June 2006. Now, I am enjoying staying home with my two beautiful girls and working as the First Counselor in my ward's Primary Presidency. In my spare time, I have started sewing baby blankets, crocheting, knitting, stamping cards, and trying to find fun new ways to help my children learn. That's about it for the past 9 years...5 years of marriage, 4 different addresses, 3 new phone numbers, 2 beautiful daughters and 1 Bachelor's Degree.

Heather (Ravnikar) & Darrell Hendriksen

The summer after graduation I started attending the U of U. I had fun in college being involved in different groups including the Crimson Line performing dance team for the 3 full -years that I was at the U. I then graduated in December 2001 with a major in Mathematics and minor in Physics. I've always loved math so that's why I ended up majoring in it, but I got a job in marketing and ended up using my math & computer skills as well while being employed at I married Darrell Hendriksen (Granger class of 96) on 02/02/02. Upon returning from our Italian honeymoon, my mom announced her engagement and was married that April. It was fun being newlyweds together! After our wedding, Darrell and I moved to a home in Sugarhouse and later moved around the corner to a different home; we love the Sugarhouse area. I continued to work at until my first son, Salem, was born on August 21, 2003. I stayed home with my baby until he was 16 months old, then went back to work at Overstock and Darrell became Mr. Mom so that he could finish school. Our next son, Oaklen, was born on May 31, 2006. After maternity leave I went back to work for a few months but then Darrell and I switched rolls again so now I'm home being a mom and Darrell is working at a marketing company called Datamark. We stay quite busy with church callings, home remodeling and raising our kids. I have recently taken on a volunteer position as the promotions & marketing chairperson for the Utah Breastfeeding Coalition ( so my time is well managed! Life is great. I hope you all are happy and healthy!
