Sorry to break up the ' what a great guy Dick was' party, but I couldn't stand him or the group he hung with.  As long as you adored him from afar, or were in his clique of friends, he was not a person to be admired.

I never met anyone as self centered as Dick when I spent my Senior year at Mayfield High.  I was considered just another guy there.  It turned my whole high school experience around for me.  A better class of people went to Mayfield according to my older brother.  He would know having graduated ahead of me in '67 at North.

I won't miss his 'better than you' attitude' or anything else about him.

Not a popular sentiment, mine, but honest, not PC, but I'm too old to worry what small minds, or any mind thinks of my opinion.  I cannot believe I was the only person that felt the way I did.

Anyway, the slab comes for us all and once we're gone we are equal in the worm's point of view

Hey Tony,

I just wanted to thank you for your generous hospitality at the reunion. I think it just goes to show how friendships made in high school are some of the most lasting.

I cn't thank you enough for posting the the picture of Pat Prahin and me. I had such a crush on her growing up. She is still beuatiful, wouldn't you agree>

At the 50, MAKEYOUR HUSBAND COME WITH YOU! He must be a terrific guy if you fell in love with him.

Thanks again,

Hey John,

I just left a message with Bill Friel telling him that I'm flying up from Florida for the 45th reunion.

I have my airline tickets already. I am also going to see my siblings, I have a sister with Stage 3 inoperable lung cancer.

Between you, Dennis Poole, and Dave Mohr, I have the best memories of Kennedy Jr. and North.

I would love to see you and catch up. Think about it.

Your friend in pass-catching,
