Comments:

Val and I have talked about moving from our idylic location in Laguna Niguel for over 35 years. My choice for a short term is to rent a farm house in Normandie, France. We have friends for over thirty years in Octivill.Some parts of the Norman coast are a throughback in time. The bunkers used during WWll are still intact and our friends family has an original Jeep dropped from the sky during the war. I love the nostalgia. I have discovered that my paternal grandfather escaped from Konella, Ukraine with his brother and settled in the Boston area. For years we thought we were Romanian but a distant cousin of my dad made this come to light. It's a great conversation starter. Several of my fellow grads knew of this too! I still get my hands dirty with cars at every opportunity, and my felow puppy companion Albus (aka Peanut) is by my side everyday..

School Story:

Three of my fellow 65 grads and I rented an apartment on Monastery St. in Mt. Adams during our senior year. It was a 2 story place. Rent was $45 a month. The upstairs living area gave way to a door leading to a large flat roof. We worked to pay the rent and on Friday and Saturday nites the place was teeming with "guests:, Some invited some not. On Sunday we would wonder over to City View and sit outside on the overlook to the Ohio River. Pete Seidner worked @ Schiff Shoes in Swifton, Steve Rosen worked @ Kroger, Buzz Sawyer worked @ W.T. Grant, and I worked @ Radio Shack. It is amazing how far $1.50+ commission an hour could carry us.

Linda's VOICE is seared in my soul. When she spoke it sounded like the 11th. Commandment. Don't ever get in her way. She found a soul mate in "Her Rabbi". I am quite sure everyone she touched remembers her strong will.

Buzz and I were great friends throughout our senior Year. Buzz worked at WT Grant and we had the opportunity to rent a great apartment as seniors in Mt. Adams. Buzz, Pete Seidner, Steve Rosen and I rented this incredible apartment on lower Celestial for the sum of $45 a month. The apartment is still intact although it has been totally renovayed into a million dollar abode, with an incredible view of the Ohio from the second floor walkout. Our parties were legendary if anyone from Woodward recalls. Our Sunday favorite was City View Tavern. We were all underage. One of us looked old enough to be served. Buzz died from severe drug useage. I made contact with him and invited him to one of our reunions. He declined and I never spoke to him again. He lived in the fast lane.

Kathy, I must thank you for putting up with me in Mr. Ruley's class. Cutting the frog open and finding the Pearl in the oyster( even though no one except you believed me) was what being a Woodward student was all about. I am saddened to know that your life was cut short. I do hope your husband is able to read this and smile.

To all of the "65 Woodward classmates. My paternal grandfather his brother,sister and my great grandparents are from Konela, Ukraine. I have never been more proud of my ancestry and hope I hear from more of us. The nazis took their toll on this minor farm town during WWll. Now look what is happening again!

Several years ago our family was at The Cactus Pear. My moms first cousin, Francine Rafalo mentioned Art Paul as he was standing up to leave. I had not heard his name for scores of years, and all of a sudden he is standing in front of me. I asked? "Are you the same Art Paul from Woodward"? He said. "Well yes I am".  Instantly I was flooded with memories. I started asking about "Bear", Paul Fleming and Sid Friedman. He gave me a great rundown on them. Now I am sorry to say I won't be able to follow up and find out more. If anyone reading this knows the whereabouts of Coach Fleming please say so. He was an outstanding baseball player at UC...

Irv, We go back a long time, including a friendship, and a very long standing friendship between our mom's.. To everyone that reads this. We must revere the time we are on loan here., and realize how thin the line is. Your smile and warmth will be missed by all of us that you touched...

The Dave Mitchell I knew reminded me of the guy who could put a BIG arm around you when you were in need. He kind of lumbered in his approach, almost slough like.When he addressed you the voice came from way down within, Again if memory serves me well, it evolved to a higher pitch upon release. I am sorry I never recorded him.  Here I stand writing this to his friends and family. Maybe some of you have that memory. You certainly show the LOVE
