David's Latest Interactions
I hope you weathered the storm and all is alright with you and your family. We're just getting a little of the remaining rain today from Florence. Nothing much.

No I don't remember a priest with that name. St. Gabriel's was such a center for fun for so many of us. I don't know if you saw Dan Szymanski's post from the Post Gazette about the Carr girls. Although I don't remember the Carr family, reading the story really made the tragedy real.
I'm sorry to hear of Jeannette's death. We shared many classes together in our formative years at Overlook. I want to extend my sincere condolences to her family.
Awake a few minutes tonight so i thought I'd start a game with you, my fellow classmates. If there's anything that sticks us all together it's the music we grew up with. So wishing you happiness for the holidays, I'm starting a 'name that tune' and 'name that group'. This one should grease up every joint in your body and bring a smile of joy. These are the abbreviated first lyrics:
"Well, you know..."
The death of any of our classmates, whether I knew them or not, whether I remember them or not, leaves a mark, a scar.
Carol was the first person from our class whom I learned had died. I really felt that could not have happened. When we were young we lived only three doors apart on Greenridge Dr. so we knew each other well. I have an enduring mental picture of her giddily leaping from her toes into the air, launching herself into a piroette, landing and gleefully leaping up again, a platinum blonde curl bouncing off her forehead and returning to place. She was happy, close to her brother Paul and to her parents. In and around 1955 she and Paul would run down the street past my house to meet their father as he arrived home on a bus from work. They skipped and held his hand heading home.
Thinking of and praying for your recovery. I greatly admire your strength.

Hi David, What pictures?
Yes, Paul, I remember Darryl on the trombone. And I also remember his sense of humor. He looks so good in the reunion photograph, it's difficult to swallow that he's gone. I want to pass on my deeply felt sympathies and sorrow to his family.

Greg, nice photo with Cheryl. Where were you? What's that great background? the Sierras?

I think your idea to celebrate your birthday volunteering is a wonderful one. I'll be sure to think of you January 3rd. I wish you a joyous and fulfilling day and year. You have given me - for your birthday - a renewed interest in volunteering to read to some folks at an elderly home nearby where I live in Queens, N.Y.

I wondered about you with the reunion coming around. I hope things are going well for you. I fondly remember our working together for Whitehall Boro. when we had a chance to get to know one another.
