Comments:

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
50th REUNION
NRHS'65 THE YEAR THAT LASTS FOREVER

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.....

Two more days and now your poised at the starting line just as you were in gym class with your white t-shirt and white gym shorts back in 1965. I've got money riding on you that your time now will be just as fast as it was then and don't be creeping. Forever young Ralph, forever young... HBD

Back in the day I never knew anyone as upbeat and positive as Liz Kaprow. You gave a warm aura to our page. It was always fun being around you with your gazillion of ideas and with that exquisite and beautiful penmanship it was a cinch that your star was pointed towards some form of art. I am positive, even after all of these years that your "it factor"
still changes any room that you enter. Have a great day Liz and yes you are an incredible person in my eyes. Oh! I compiled this from all of the other birthday wishes that I wrote you but were never answered but I hope that you have read them and perhaps laughed in silence. Oh, and I still can't draw!! Happy Birthday next week. Every Blessing.

It just feels like a Robert Zimmerman Day. You know John, that guy from Hibbing Minn.
Well if you can't remember, but I'm sure that you do, the answer is blowing in the wind.. :-)
Again Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday John,
I've always remembered that you were taller than me and with my advancing years, (not yours), I'm sure that you still are. Make this day SPECTACULAR!!! The only corona that I hope you encounter is the one in an ice cold can. Many More.....
Oh! if you remember that I was with Pags on the NRHS hockey team, then I'll know that you're far too far into the day!!!! :-)

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!
