Comments:

My wife Debra and I will have been married for 30 years this Jun 22. Maybe you guys can help me decide whether to celebrate this audacious occasion, Should I take her to Harry Potter at Universal Studios or have Elvis Presley marry us in Las Vegas (this would be our 3rd marriage ceremony...I'll explain that another time). I am still practicing orthodontics--I'll eventually get it perfected. I moved to a new location in Valparaiso, IN 6 months ago and signed a 10 year lease. How's that for optimism?!! Our children, ages 24, 23,22, and 20 are still finding themselves. Jared wants to live off the grid; Miri has special challenges but she is a music savant and maybe she'll get into composing; Rani is a psych major but has art and music talents so she is floundering; and Kaile is an orthodontic assistant who is considering becoming a behaviorist. My wife Debra has resurrected her Duo Sequenza, Flute and Guitar after 20 years. I remember when we were dating , flying out to Geneva, Switz to see her perform. Yes I was smitten by her and still am but I ain't ever going to Europe again to see her perform! I can fill you in on other stuff when I see you.

School Story:

I remember being sent to the principal's office for trying to fly a kite in our commons area. I also remember when The football coach Hendricks (?) sent two football players to take me to his office because I came to school in my lettermans sweater(?)and had removed my wrestling and cross country pins and replaced them with science award pins. Boy did he dress me down.Now high schoolers have letterman jackets for band, choir, cheerleading debate...you name it. I may have started this trend. I remember when I used to help the gymnastics coach teach wrestling in gym classI only weighed 120 lbs and he offered an A to anyone to put me on my back and pin me. ..a very long gym period for me. I'll remember more stories when i see you at the dinner/dance.

David, I remember when you invited me to your home .When I walked in i was overwhelmed by all the paintings of the great masters covering your walls. You were by far one of my most out of the box friends( and most my friends were), most intelligent, and closest of friends. I recall you refusing to crack open yor math book, and to accept my offer to tutor you in math because you could not perceive how it would help you in your present and future interests.You had to take Chinese language courses outside of school so you could prepare for your future endeavors. I remember meeting your China- born wife, Soching.She skunked us in Scrabble....I want a rematch. I could go on and on with our shared memories. miss you man!

I am looking forward to seeing you at the Reunion. I must be getting old but I can't remember any specific interactions at school but there must have been because I have such warm feelings of friendship when I came to your profile.

I will never understand why an athlete and good dresser like you ever befriended a nerd like me in grammar school. Thank you for all the years of friendship we had shared .

I am sure your Judith will continue to be your interesting roommate for years to come. ...reminds me of my marvelous roommate in professional school----Robert Turner. He chose his friends well.

Where's that twin brother of yours? You helped making my H.S. experience so enjoyable. When I watch the Big Bang Theory, I think about our group of friends. What I remember best about you is your infective good nature and the impish glint in your eyes. Did you know we share Bruce Munro in common?

Barry, we were best of friends in grammar and high school. We were both on the wrestling team and you sure taught me alot. Remember when you were at wrestling camp and anybody receiving 2 letters or more from girls got thrown into the lake and you never had a dry day? That was me. I had made friends with the captain of Main West's Pom Pom squad and she had her team mates write hot letters to you and she sent them out!! You were an inspiration to me during H.S. with your dedication and perseverence.Hope to see you at the dinner/dance.

LARRY ....We became friends prior to highschool through meeting at a camping event in boyscouts.. You humbled me in indian wrestling.We became best of friends. Time passes too quickly. I will always remember you as a warm friendly guy who never had a bad word to say about anyone. Hope to see you at the dinner/dance.

Hi Mike. Hope to see you at the reunion. I just went to Joan's 50 year reunion and now it's her turn to make mine. It was fun to meet and see how things have changed, where did all that time go and grey hair come from, LOL.
