I am so sorry to read of Berneen's passing. We were very good friends at Lenox Elem and in Jr HS. I gave her piano lessons for a while at that time. I understood she had some health issues a few years ago and lived in Assisted Living.She was a classy gal and a caring friend. I am sorry we lost touch. Fondly, Mary

Eddy was such a nice guy in our HS band program. I think he played the oboe. Seems like he was a good friend of Kent in the clarinet section. We were all friends. Like all us Scandinavians, he had a cute way of blushing. May you rest in peace. I know you have been a good person!

When I think of Sharon, I think of the word VIBRANT! I recall a wonderful conversation I had with her at one of our reunions. She was accomplished, open and colorful. What a great lady!
