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.....

My prayers go out to Chris's family and obviously to Chris himself:  From thoughts to themes, the creation of beautiful projects in a life in which both were well fashioned... God Bless

You've known that I've always loved you
But was just a little too shy
And not as fast as Fred -
What a lucky Guy!!
Happy Birthday and My Best to both of you
Greg "The Turtle" Douglas :-)

For all of those years at New Rochelle School Football we practiced together hour after hour until we got it right. Ralph  with those wonderful hands of his was like a silent assassin whose pass patterns  tore through defenses and with his catches made them pay for their mistakes. Because of his undeniable consistancy he proved to be the favorite target of  Steve Paul Mark.

While the crowd went wild over the touchdowns and the 1965 undefeated season, in our huddle you would never know that  Ralph had scored - he was just that focused and ready for the next play. Playing with him on that Thanksgiving Day Game  after all of these years I was just informed that he was sick and went awol from his hospital bed just to play. His performance that day never betrayed him.

That's the way he was only yesterday and now on the other side of tomorrow my condolences to his family and friends. As one of the 1965 Undefeateed New Rochelle School Football Teamj - Ralph Shedden was one of the very best.

Liz Kaprow:

 

It took me this long to find that this classmate,

A special friend at Camelot

 Has since transitioned

With a Heart of sunshine

And Compassion's soul

Her Ambition was to chase the clouds away

Endowed with a million ideas

And with the means

The brains and the hands

To create their reality

In thinking of Liz then and now

I still feel the smile

That she painted upon my forehead...

Thanks for being if only briefly

But forever on my mind....

                                                                                                      Greg
