Like George, I posted a condolence message to Tom about Susan's passing, but it has not appeared.  I am, similarly, saddened to hear of Lois' passing, although she and her husband have suffered so, I hope that she has now been relieved of her suffering.

My condolences to Tommy and the Israel family as well as to The Ehrlich and Scarfglass families.  A difficult time of life and all the more reason to gather together with old friends.

Please be sure you update your email and address to your profile so we can find everyone.

I am so sorry to let you know my friend of 64 years and fellow classmate, Judy Trois Hatten, passed away last December 15th. She fought the good fight but lost to ovarian cancer. I will miss her always.

LINDA --- Sorry to hear about Judy's death. The passing of friends and classmates is unhappily becoming all too frequent. ---- It is the way of life and all of us are on that track, unsure of when we will get to our station. Three on this site in a pretty short period. Three others on my personal prayer list in the past seven days. ---- My guess is that I am not unique in an experience like this.---- An unlikely truth is that of these deaths it is Lois that I miss most. We were never close in school, had zero contact for 55 years., never saw each other after graduation day in 1963, but she had become my best female friend other than Jan and our girls. --- Disease and the clock are subject only to God.

Any word on possible reunion?  I have seen notices on Facebook about an all class reunion - but that's not the same, of course.  J

Like Janet, I have seen the Facrbook postings, but I rarely respond on Facebook.  I would certainly be interested in a 60th reunion.  Harriet

We should for sure do a reunion

It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of our dear friend Mel Kosmin on Friday, May 18 after a long battle with cancer. We will miss Mel's wonderful personality and great sense of humor.
Rest in peace, Mel.

Thanks for letting us know, Roy.  I was very sad to hear this.   Too many....  Let's be sure to cherish each day and stay in touch.  Janet

Preliminary planning for our 60th reunion in 2023 is underway. All are welcome to join the committee that will meet in early May to discuss all aspects of the event. Contact me directly for more specific information.

Classmates can participate by joining the committee or offer help in a more informal way to provide assistance to whatever extent they choose. Looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Roy --- Thanks for sharing this unhappy news. --- Mel was one of my best HS friends. Often ate lunch together. A fond memory was of lunch the day we dissected frogs in Mr Lance's bio class. I think there we 4 of us at our table with two frogs. We dissected one but only skinned the other, which I wrapped in a towel and took to lunch. When Mel , who generally brown bagged, went to get milk , his bag was passed to me. The guys unwrapped his sandwich and the frog was placed on top of it, sandwich re wrapped and bag back at his seat when he returned to the table. When he opened the wrapping on his sandwich, his hands flew up, he yelled and pushed himself back about 3 feet from the table. Several of the cafeteria monitors came quickly ,but the frog was back in safe hiding. Mel did not narc us out. ---- When last seen, the frog was riding a plate on the conveyor belt heading into the dish room. ---- Mel only lived about two blocks away on Parkview Rd. He was an all around good guy. I am sorry to hear of his passing

Mel was one of the nicest and most easygoing of all my friends, from elementary school and into the present. For those who knew him well back then, let us regret that the Ace has left the building.

I was so saddened to hear about Melvin Kosmin's passing. He lived a few houses from me during elementary, middle school and high school and we were part of a neighborhood pack. We were together all the time.  It seems like yesterday.
