Wishing you a very happy birthday 3 days early. I hope the year to come brings you and your family good health and happiness.
Hope to see you at our 55th.
I don't think I ever mentioned that Reed Chaikin, Robert's and my son, is works for IBM.
Roger Lewis, our classmate, sent me this memory of Carol
Although I had no contact with her since the 1960's, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Carol Kelvin. As I recall, she was in our sophomore year biology class at GNN. I think she sat about four rows directly behind me and about across the aisle from you. Because she was pretty, she seemed to be one of Fletcher J. Proctor's favorite recitation targets. My foggy memory from those times is that she fielded his questions pretty well, while a number of our classmates struggled through his interrogations.
A couple of years after graduation I had a summer job schlepping mail for the Great Neck US Post Office. I was well-paid (for a summer job), but it was hot sweaty work, carrying a heavy leather shoulder bag and delivering mail to individual houses. As luck would have it, I had to get a signature on a piece of mail. It was a nice surprise when Carol answered the door, gave me a big hello, invited me in for a cooling off break, and gave me a couple of glasses of ice water- just because we'd been classmates, not because we'd been school buddies.
Kind people like Carol are the easiest to like and the ones the world misses the most.
Loving sentiments of Carol from her husband, Gerry
Carol loved life. She was beautiful both inside and out. She was one of those people who was excellent at everything she did. She loved people and really cared about them. But the people she cared most about were her children and grandchildren. And as a result, all of us continue to miss her each and every day.

Hi Jeff, We've missed you.
I moved to Great Neck at the end of 1st grade in 1949. You and I had the same 1st grade teacher at Kensington, Mrs. White. My middle name was Jeffrey, and I was known as Jeffrey. But, since my first name was James, Mrs. White asked me if I could be known as Jim, to differentiate me from you. I brought this suggestion home to my parents, and my father said he had always wanted to call me Jim. So, thanks to you, I became Jim, and have stayed Jim for the rest of my life.
All my best,
Jim (formerly Jeffrey)
Congratulations on your 50th wedding anniversary.
I note that you and John beat me and Barbara by one week. We were married on Aug. 22, 1964. We celebrated with a big party with family and friends in NY City.
Here's to the next 50 years!
All my best,
Attached picture: Our son's wedding, 5/25/12. Our daughter and her husband are on one side, their children are in front, and Barbara and I are on the other side.
We have a third grandchild, Oliver McMahon Wynne, born 12/18/13
