Hi Patti. I just saw that you signed in. Sorry to hear about Bob. I was also shocked to see that Larry is also no longer with us. You may be the best looking Class Secretary in the past 50 years!

Ralph was a fabulous Class Officer. His energy was boundless, a great friend, and a joy to be with. It will be great to see him at the reunion.

I had a crush on Mary for a long time.  She was a hard worker whether at Friendlys or on campus.  She had a nice way about her.

Enid was a rock-solid, first class fellow student.  She listened well and comported herself so that we regarded her as a role model for other young women.  She also married a great guy--Paul Silverman, Student Senate President and my roommate.

He was the student Senator representing our class.  He was highly energetic and fearless in representing our class.  I always admired his honesty, a trait that brings confidence to the political scene at every level. He was a fine role model for others seeking leadership positions in student government.
