We have heard the sad news of the loss of several classmates and plan to honor them at the reunion. I'd rather not list classmates on this blog, however. It would be nice for us to have an In Memoriam link and we'll work on that idea as we continue to build the web site.
Disclosure statement: I did not write the above entry; however, I was in the presence of the person who did.
Terry,Hi, by the way the guy with the "deep voice"Robert Haley
Playing manhunt with the Kenyon boys and the rest of the neighborhood, sure. Anyone remember getting a pink belly? Isn't that what it was called when you were held down and your stomach was slapped silly? I remember being the recipient of a pink belly and my stomach was fiery red for days. Didn't we all run around in packs trying to catch lightning bugs, too? How about some country club swim team memories and playing Line Tag or Marco Polo until your toes and fingers were shriveled up because you were in the water for hours on end?
Lincoln School - I seem to recall hearing John Combias was going to give me his ID bracelet but then he decided to give it to Holly Penwell instead. What a crusher. There is a funny story about Mom and Peter finding out about John. They pulled into his driveway to have a conversation with his parents over his intentions!!!. I was in the backseat of the station wagon (remember those?) and had managed to crawl underneath the driver's seat in complete mortification and horror. Alas, they were just teasing me and we drove home. Ah, the memories of youth!!!
Who out there has been married the longest to the same person? Any high school sweethearts still married to each other?
As I've yet to manage that commitment once ... can I chalk it up to being a (very, very) late bloomer?

I've got about the same number and can place the face but not the name on several others. 24 kids -- seems like a lot, huh? Baby boomers, indeed.
