      Happy 60th Birthday to the BHS Class of 1972! 


Click on the Photos & Videos link for more 60th Birthday photos!

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.

Turning 60 is definitely a huge accomplishment. Just think, if you weren’t there to celebrate this wonderful event, where would you be? Not everyone gets to see their 60th birthday, so make this a celebration to remember. And from this day forward, life is precious, so embrace it and enjoy every second. No day should be wasted.

~ Never count your years, only your friends, smiles and cheers! ~

Hi everyone!
I like many of you probably, was sad to hear that our classmate, Mitch, had no siblings, no children & no relatives except one cousin and that there were no funeral services planned for him.
I decided that I would have a mass said for him, at my Catholic church, St. Jude's in Ocala, FL on this coming Monday, Aug 1st.
I'm asking all of you to take a moment & say a prayer for Mitch on Monday, that he may "Rest in Peace" & now be with Jesus, Mother Mary, his earthly mother & all the angels & saints in heaven!! 🙏🙏🙏💕👍
We miss you, Mitch!🥺
