In remembrance
of our fellow classmates who are now deceased.
Our thoughts will be on them whenever we revisit our memories
of our grade school, junior high school and senior high school years.
We were all there together.

*** In 2006, a classmate's death was falsely reported to us by someone who claimed to be a friend.  In the future, reporting of the passing of a classmate will not take place until it is verified by a family member or newspaper clipping.  We did originally make the posting with a "(?)", but I do apologize for the error.  I guess this is another reason why it would be advised to keep up to date on this page to make sure you are still thought to be with us.
