Classmate Spotlight

February 2004


2004 already. Most of us were born in the first half of the last century. That sounds impressive! Most of us are still here, thanks to good living, medical science, or plain dumb luck. Regardless of what I owe it to, the senior discount from Denny's is only months away!

It's been a great pleasure to me to attend as many reunion events as I can, and to see again old friends and acquaintances. Indeed sometimes the greatest pleasure is to see people in a new light; to get to know them as they are now; to see in the best sense what we have all become.

Many times in my life, people have been amazed to find that I still have close friends from high school. In point of fact, some of my very best friendships date back to my school days in Burbank. Was it the innocent time we grew up in or the turbulent times we lived through that made us what we are? I don't know. But I'm glad I was there then, and I'm glad I'm here now.

I'm glad all of you are, too.
