Comments:

My family moved to Nashville, TN in 1965 right after we graduated from Woodward. A quick scenario - I married Howard Kohnstamm in 1968, raised two wonderful children (Shana and Jeremy), got happily divorced in 1992. I wandered a little to live by the beach - Gulf Shores, AL 1995-1999; Hollywood, FL 1999-2005. In 2005, Jeremy (who lives in Knoxville, TN) called to tell me I was going to be a grandmother and I moved here soon after. I now have two little grandsons and they are the lights of my life. When I'm not working (I'm a bookkeeper - what else!) I spend as much time with family as possible. My daughter, Shana Kohnstamm is an artist in Nashville. I'm her biggest admirer - www.shanagallery.com.

School Story:

My fondest memory of Woodward was being in the choir with Mr. Mac. (Mr. Lang was good, but he was no Mr. Mac!) I loved the voices blending together to create such a beautiful sound. The concerts, Showcase, the time we sang at Cincinnati Gardens with the other high school choirs - all wonderful memories.

A funny memory comes to mind... in Business English, before the teacher came in, one of the girls wrote what we 'thought' were the bad words to "Louie, Louie" on the blackboard - in shorthand! Back then it was outrageous! Now? Not so much.

Thanks, Elaine, for the birthday wishes! Very sweet. Yes, those are my grandsons - the lights of my life. Hadn't planned on coming to the reunion, but I'll certainly think about it. Hope this finds you doing well.
