Yes! Attending Reunion
Comments:

after h.s. i worked for a year in chicago, commuting and making little, realizing the importance of college, i enrolled at the WU-extension. after my first year, i transferred to Madison..graduating with a BS degree in 1966. after graduating i returned to kenosha, taught 7th and 8th grade at St Mark's, until 1970 when i moved to Ft Lauderdale Fla to escape the winter. there i met my wife , opened an Italian restaurant, had my daughter, learned how to cook and the rest is history! currently i am caring for my mother as well as cared for my dad, who passed last year and from this caregiving experience i have a desire to hopefully pursue a second career in the field of gerontology.....we all need help!
i have completed my certificate of gerontology this semester, 2011.
What a great time at the reunion this summer. I was so happy to see those who i remembered and were intramental in making those cherished school memories...including the years from grade school on thru hgih school and even some into my college years...thanks for being there then and now...hope to see you at the next reunion in 5 years...

Words can't express my sorrow and shock hearing this sudden death of my dearest friend ??. I am still dealing with devastating news, as well as his husband Nato, son Aaron and daughter Andrea. Jack was a unique man and friend to all he met. There wasn't a unpleasant thought for anyone he met, always giving an opportunity to see the good in everyone. He will be loved and missed by family and friends ?. RIP My friend, will never forget our friendship.

Suzette thank Jeni for posting the reunion pics. I can imagine how busy you are caring for Buzz. Give him my best, hoping he's comfortable and making positive progress. If you need anything don't hesitate to ask. Always thinking of you and Buzz.??
