Comments:

In 1961, I married my daughters' Father and we divorced in 1967. When I graduated from high school, I started working for the State, beginning as a stenographer and ending my 35 year career as a Computer System Software Specialist for Central Management Services. I retired in 2000. Twenty-one of the 35 years, I also was a Realtor and am still very active in Springfield's real estate community. I love spending time with my family, traveling, reading, volunteering, computers, and of course I love real estate.

School Story:

I don't really remember too much from high school, but I do remember never being asked to a dance. Can you imagine how devastating that was? I did save money from not having to purchase a dress.

I do remember how red my face would get when I was being teased or had to speak in class. Mr. Hoffman called me "Pinky" and that stuck with a lot of Classmates.

 Henry had an exceptional career. Wouldn't our 1961 Class at Lanphier loved to have him at our class reunion to do Karaoke?  RIP, Henry.

Carolyn, it was so nice to see you after 55 years. We sat together with you and Richard and really enjoyed the whole table. I hope you both will come to some of our monthly luncheons at Fulgenzi's. It is really fun and you never know who will show up. Side note: Your birthday is the same day as my husband's and both are Scorpio!!

I remember Joyce very well from high school.  We were in gym together (with our blue uniforms).  She was always so nice and fun.  I did see her at our 50th class reunion and so happy I was able to talk with her for a few minutes.  I didn't realize she had such strong ties to our area with her children and siblings.

So sad to hear about Ken.  I went through grade school at Enos and then on to Lanphier High Schoolwith him.  He was a very nice person.  Met up with him years later accidently with Veronica and was happy to hear that he had a successful life and was happily married to Veronica.  Condolences to his family.
