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...

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.??

Hello Janice and Jer, missed hearing from you guys lately. Hope all is well with you and your family. We had a nice reunion last week. Sorry you guys didn't make it but understandable. I only attended the Icebreaker Friday night as my health has been good. I am on oxygen 24/7 been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, scarring of the lungs...difficult breathing. No cure but it is what it is. Please let me hear from you guys....many great memories and laughs. Love ??

So sorry to see that another classmate and friend from the old Italian neighborhood passed. Grew up in the Columbus Park area. We attended Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church, Bain School. Nice person. May she rest in peace.

Sorry to read of Hilda's passing. I remember her as soft spoken and sweet. Didn't say much, but was friendly. Sad passing with Alzheimer's disease. RIP Hilda.
