From our classmates about our weekend....
..."Well, I'm back from a real fun weekend on Long Island. Saw so many friends that I haven't seen in a long time. It was so great and I am so happy that I went!"
...."The 40th reunion was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING weekend. I would personally like to thank ALL of you from the bottom of my heart for making this one ofthe BEST weekends ever. We are so fortunate to have each other in our lives and I LOVE you ALL."
...." It was really great seeing you all. I wish we could have spent more time, but with all the wonderful people there, it was difficult get around to see everyone. Hopefully, we don't have to wait another 10 yrs to get together."
