Happy belated birthday. Sorry, I lost my password and couldn't get logged in. After searching futilely, I gave up, so naturally a few weeks later I found it. It sounds as if things are going well for you. More of the same, only double. I read that book you sent and found it helpful. Thanks

Congratulations on another birthday. I hope you are healthy and enjoying the good life.
Happy Birthday, Bonnie
I hope you had a great day and many more.
Another year already. Congratulations. I hope everything is going well for you. I think back to our growing up years and realize what an idyllic time that was. I never felt unsafe. We'd go out after school and play until supper. Our parents didn't see us (certainly weren't helicopter parents) and that was fine. They had their world and we had ours. I always felt safe in school (even if we did have to stick our heads in our lockers for protection in case the Russians decided to atom bomb Barry School.) It was a more innocent time or maybe I was just innocent and naive. Either way, I liked it.
Have a great birthday and the rest of the year.
Best wishes for a great day and a great year. We're not getting older; we're getting better! (At some things, not so good running a mile, doing chin ups, climbing several flights of stairs, getting out of bed in the morning--oops, talking about me. I hope you're still able and willing.
I hope we can run into each other some time again.
Best of everything always,

Here's hoping you have a great birthday. (They seem to come around quicker than they used to). Best wishes to you,
Here's hoping you had a wonderful birthday, the day after Memorial Day seems appropriate and fitting. I remember the fun we had playing softball. I don't know if you are planning to attend the 55th reunion. I hope to see you there and do some catching up.
Best wishes for a happy, healthy life.
Here's hoping you had a wonderful birthday today. Since I'm sending you this message a bit late (forgot my Schurz password, then found it) , I hope that tomorrow and the next day is etc.etc into infinity are also wonderful. There was some talk about another reunion, but I don't know if it's going to happen. Seeing you and Rich brought back the most memories for me. My wife reads the obits and comments on how many are younger than us--that works for me.
Hope to see you again some time soon,
Gordon or Gordie
I hope you have a well deserved happy birthday and another wonderful year to follow.
I don't know about you, but I don't feel any older (maybe a little slower, but not older).
Best wishes always and a huge thank you for the 50th anniversary reunion and this wonderful website to keep track of everybody.

What an inspiring story, Jill. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a great year. There's a possibility of another reunion this summer, something more low key like a picnic. I hope it comes to be and I'll see you there.
Best wishes always,
Happy Birthday, Pat
What a wonderful fulfilling life for someone who certainly deserves it. I wish you the best for many more years.
I wish I had known. We could have bought out trees from you. I think we got ours at Riverview. (Talk about the good old days) How cool to have a brother who taught at Schurz.
Thanks for sharing and bringing back some memories
Here's hoping for a happy birthday celebration for you that will last the whole year.
Best wishes for health and happiness.
What a life, sailing where you want to go. I've only sailed twice, once on a catamaran (sp?) where we had to hold onto a rope and lean way over the side. My stomach was sore afterwards, but what fun. The second time was about a month later on a rowboat with a sail, much tamer, but I used what I had learned about tacking to sail back up wind.
Best wishes for a very happy birthday.
I met a teacher I used to teach with and she said the best thing about retirement is you don't have to do anything you don't want to. If it's not fun, don't do it.
It seems to me that you are living that credo, and you have earned the right to.
Have a happy birthday and much smooth sailing for many more years.
Here' s hoping you have a great day (and another 365 or them until your next birthday).
It's been fun catching up with friends from over 50 years ago. When I see what many of us have accomplished, I'm filled with two emotions, pride and astonishment. I'm also gratified that so many of us are still around and active. I really enjoyed my four years at Schurz, but I don't really think I appreciated what we had until now.
I'll stop before I become all maudlin. We don't need maudlin when we're celebrating a birthday. Many happy returns. I hope that we another reunion soon, not necessarily such a formal occasion, but just old friends reuniting and reminiscing.
The best to you always,
