50 Year Reunion Questionnaire Response:

Hello and congratulations to the class of ’59!

Compliments to all of the members of the reunion committee for all of their
hard work, phone calls, and e-mails. The web site is fantastic and the
photos are great. Thank you all for sharing.

Sorry that I won’t be in town to catch up on what everyone has been up to
since the last reunion. However, I will be with you in spirit and promise
to raise a glass or two, at the appropriate time, in honor of the evening.

 

 

Life in general has been very kind. Shortly after our last reunion, we
moved from Ohio to St. Louis. Six years ago we headed to OKC and are quite
pleased with the way things have worked out.

As for the personal stuff:

  • 3 children are all married. One in St. Louis, one in Dallas, and
    one in Sydney, Australia.
  • 4 grandsons, 2 in St. Louis and 2 in Dallas.
  • 1 wife, who has instructed me not to make any disparaging remarks
    about her if I want to celebrate our 40th anniversary next March.
  • Am still a hacker at golf but love it.
  • Annually test the laws of physics by water skiing – did so about a
    month ago.
  • Will probably be working until our retirement funds are replenished
    (or a long, long time).

Question for the class: does anyone else remember a day in late spring of
’59 when a group of St. E alums celebrating their 50th stopped outside of
our classroom? I “think” I recall that scene and hearing Marilou Gannon and
some of the other girls commenting on how strange it would be to come back
after 50 years. Now that we are there, it is strange. The time has flown
by way too fast.

Here’s to Marilou and all of the other classmates who are no longer with us.
