So good to hear from you, and thank you for the "card".

Not sure where the miscommunication re my mother came from.  My mother passed away several years ago at the age of 67.  My husband just passed in 2010.

I have kids/grandkids scattered all over.  Extended family are in CA, CO, VA, and NY.  My two sons are in CT and CO. I recently relocated to CT to be near that son and family and will spend Christmas in CO.  I spent Thanksgiving on Long Island.  I'm near the ferry so that trip is a breeze.

One son (Mike) is a manager for Costco; the other (Patrick) is in the process of buying the company he's run for the last few years.  Oldest granddaughter (Alex) is in college in upstate NY, majoring in some kid of linquistics.  (I just nod sagely when she explains it to me.)  She has been to France and will be going to Korea soon.  Next in line is my granddaughter (Nikki), a junior in high school.  She's currently checking out universities in RI, Maine, and PA.  She's been to Italy.  I tell them I was thrilled to go to the state fair - never thought I'd ever get to go out of the country.

Then comes the only boy (Spencer) who just started high school.  He's quite the soccer player, if Grandma does say so herself.  And his little sister (Brigitta) is 9.  She is my revenge for all the times her dad took me to the emergency room.

I've now retired for the third time - once from Lockheed, then from being a paralegal, and finally back in Human Resources for a retirement setting.  I'm through.  Come Spring, I'll probably volunteer for a local theatre group, but will just take trips and take my Zumba class with the senior center until then.

Please keep in touch - I always enjoy hearing from you.

I was really surprised by Rosalind’s announcement on the class site. (My son texted it to me as I don’t have a computer!). He worked hard and got it on my phone yesterday so see if it works )

I believe you all know me well enough after working hard to help put on all the Reunions so far, that I would not have said those things!!  I have had 2 places reserved for different events for almost 3 months now.   I will cancel them!

In fact due to health issues in some of of the families of great helpers and loyal classmates (please keep them in your prayers) and Covid19, we had decided that for everyone’s saftey we should postpone the Reunion til next year!

However, since Rosalind decided to step in, I wish you all the Best for our 60th. STAY SAFE!

I'm sorry Peggy's ideas for locations have been canceled as I'm sure they were great ideas, perhaps better than last time.  I'm also amazed that we're not postponing the event, given what many of us are going through.  Perhaps the Great Plains aren't experiencing stuff like wearing masks and gloves, hitting the "senior" shopping time of 7 a.m., etc. just to buy groceries.  Anyway, until I can go further than my front door, I guess I'll have to miss this reunion - and I do mean miss.

I am thinking October 3rd will likely be a little soon for COVID-19 to settle down.  What about a 61st class reunion in 2021?


Whatever turns out, I'll plan on being there!

I'm hoping so, too, Pat.  No matter how long we have to wait.  And however many of us are still around and able to come. Good to hear from you!

  I agree with all the above.  Thank you for all your time and work.

  Update:  So far I have 50 stand up comeddy shows scheduled in 10 states on my 2022 Veterans National Road Tour. has more details.

  Although I do not have bookings for Jul or Aug yet, I probably will be in Kansas the first week in August.  It would be cool to see you guys then.

I have had help in resetting my password.  It does feel very good to once again be in touch with  classmates.

First af all, I want to thank Larry Clark for his tribute to Vernon.  Excellent job, Larry. 

I can remember seeing a tall blond 6th grader from Washington School when Lincoln School played basketball 

 against them.  I kept thinking that maybe that tall kid would miss the next game and we wouild have a chance to win.  3 or 4 years later, we ALL wanted that tall kid to show up for every Newton High game.  

Vernon was a natural athlete and he used his talents very well.  As I read his obituary, I realized that Vernon used those gifts all of his life, helping and inspiring others.  

Vernon will be missed.  He will be remembered fondly.
