My wife and JIm's have been lifelong friends . I got to know him better because of that than we ever did in high school. Evey year Jim and I celebrated our birthdays together with our families at Castelli's Moonlight because his birthday was Jan 11 and mine was Jan 20. Ironically , the last time I saw him was when we did that very thing two days beore he passed,as we reached the 60 years of age  milestone together. His wife honored me by asking me to serve as one of his pallbearers, which I gladly did. A fine man; the world is diminished by his loss.

I'm glad to see you are still with us. Maybe we will cross paths at the reunion.Thanks for being such a sweetheart to me at McKinley and West.

My thoughts go back to McKinley-Delmar, Mrs. Burt and square dancing, and my dancing partner whom I never told I had a crush on.

Would you believe I spent 34 years teaching in Mt. Olive, IL and retired there? Small world.

I remember playing basketball with you in pe, Pepper. Can you still get up to the rim?

Ask Earl if he remembers the good times he and I had in
college playing golf together. Hard to believe that Muni doesn't even exist anymore.

Still think about Walther League and Trinity. Good times in our lives.
