Time is both our constant companion and adversary, yet here for a few precious moments she graciously bows her head, concedes the spotlight and departs center stage. Now, in all of its radiance life's love and simplicity returns us momentarily to our infancy. Despite any woes or complexities, and despite the storms - we find ourselves once again like the sea turtles returning to our beach, like salmon returning to our stream- returning to life's origin - to become ourselves and us once more.

Here's to our up and coming

School Story:

There are several:

1) During a beautiful spring morning I became fascinated by this old man who was fishing in the twin lakes.His fishing rod was almost bent from its tip to the handle as he extended his arms well over his head. A picture of concentration, that old man very adeptly played that fish for two hours and finally was rewarded with the
largest carp I have ever seen caught in my fifteen years of fishing there. As I walked into the school I wondered if life would always be so generous - if the effort would be invested. I wrote on my late slip that I had "watched a man catch a fish". The secretary accepted it without a question.

2)After missing a homework assignment I was taken aside by my biology teacher. She told me that there was no excuse it and that I needed to see the big picture - I needed to be able, in the future step up and contribute when necessary. The next year Mrs. Anne Schwerner lost her son Michael, the freedom rider. I have never forgotten either of them.

3) How to change the complexion:
Sometimes there were gray days when dark thoughts clouded my mind. They seemed to forecast a storm ahead and I would walk around with my head down. Often a voice would rise above the din in that crowded hallway, calling out my name demanding my attention. When I looked up, there you were smiling, and then, so was I.
Thank You,
Judy, Liz, Lamonte, Josh, Charlie, Robin, Vinnie, Angelo, Cheryl, Toni.....

Artie, We'll dispense with old nick names. I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday not only for the football player that you were, not only for our perfection on the gridiron in 1965, but for the person that I have always known you are. The Best Artie!

I have not seen Don since high school. I do remember that his intensity on the ice transitioned to his genuine love and caring for others outside the rink. Just seeing his name today instantly brought a smile to my face because his smile was always so infectious. He was always a winner and never an also ran and I'm sure this was reflected throughout his life. From seventeen to seventy-one in the blink of an eyelash and with a twinkle in my eyes... because until now, I had never considered hockey being played in Heaven. Jocks Rock & God Bless

Fearless Leader a very Happy Birthday to you and stay off the rugby field. Contact sports like tennis ( where the racket contacts the ball) or better golf (where the club contacts the ball), make for an easier day. The very best Nick

So sorry to hear about Steve's illness and passing. In high school I always remembered that distinctive walk of his, as close to Robert Micheum's and just as cool. Yes, I realize that it's not used any more but Steve would have appreciated it. As for his legacy, he's never gone until we all are. Blessings

If I had but one day
I would beg for one more
Because days like this
Are worth begging for

Love in your hearts
And a smile on each face
Hugging and kissing is no disgrace
It's the body of life that we embrace

Memories are vitamins for the mind
That insure that families don't go blind
A bout the love passed down through centuries
Thank God there's no cure for this disease

If I had but one day
I would beg for one more
Because days like this
Truly are worth living for...
