If you have any thoughts you'd like to share, about the reunion or anything else, this is the place. It's open to all.

Dear Fred,

Ohmigod, we all have wrinkles!

In terms of the reunion, why don't we invite Debby Harry.  She and our parents drove us each back and forth to Centenary.  Debby was a year behind us, as you know.  In any event, I sat in for her at a class so she could go to NYC for an audition (oops).  Let's bring her.  I can try to locate her.  She's still living in NYC.  Thoughts to you and the rest of our class for feed-back.

Getting Debby Harry to come to the reunion would be a definite kick. That might make a combination '62/'63 more palatable to the class too. Good luck tracking her down.

Great idea on both counts: inviting Debby and her class to join us at the reunion.

Hey Fred, My wife, Marilou Goodwin, HHS Class of 63 was Debbie Harrys sorority sister and would love to see her and other classmates at our reunion as she doesn't think her class will have a 50th reunion.  Joe Phillips

 Hi Joe -- There seems to be some interest in including the Class of '63 in our reunion. It's possible to add those classmates to our webpage as guests, and also possible to add the whole class. I'd like to hear some feedback from the '62 group on those possibilities. I can add your wife's name now as a guest, if she is interested. Let me know. --Fred

I think that is a great idea: adding the class of '63 as guests on our site. So many dated people in our class and/or "hung out" with us.

Hi Fred,

Actually Joe and his wife were the first to respond.  They are both coming.  Did you really think his wife would let a good looking guy like Joe to come by himself?

How did time escape us all. Think about it. Like a mist our life's are almost over, and the older we get the faster the years go. My concern is for your soul, that you will live forever believe it or not. Heaven or hell, it is our choice, Choose Jesus and His free gift of salvation and ask him to come live in your heart, if you mean it He will and you will be born again, hard to believe, ask Him to give you the faith to believe, He will do even that. It's your choice, your church can't save you your Pope can't your Pastor can't, only Jesus Christ. Do not rely on men or women of this earth to get you there, they did not die for your sins, Jesus did. All the religion in the world can not save you, only Jesus, you are a good person, well hell is full of good people who denied Jesus Christ as their saviour. Even Mother Threasa's kindness will never get her to heaven, its not what you do it is who you know, you need to know Jesus personally, you must be born again, these are Jesus' own words. Jesus is God, He bacame like us so we could become like Him. Read the Gospel of John. YOU NEED JESUS NOW, TOMORROW IS PROMISED TO NO ONE. IF you died tonight, what would you see the next second, Jesus or Hell. That is your descision, I know most of you will reject Jesus and think I'm nuts, but I had to tell you in this manor, a little rough but to the point, I pray when you read this you will be convicted of being a sinner in need of Jesus, or get spitting mad at me. You need to make a chioce. I want as many of you to join Jesus in heaven for a reunion that will never end. God bless you all.GOD IS LOVE.

Hello All:

How beautiful that the Lord is using this site to send His messages of hope and love.  Jesus is truly the way, the truth and the life. 

Love in Him,

Kathy (Aurich) Stryker

PS My wonderful husband went home to the Lord 12/6/11, after a long illness of early onset dementia (13 years).  It was only through faith in my Lord that I was able to walk that walk with him and be with him and our friend Father Carl when he went home.  So very beautiful.  Hard yes, but beautiful.  Romans 5: 5 .."and hope does not disappoint because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the  Holy Spirit that has been given to us."

Yes Kathy,

My faith is with me always and sustains me.

I certainly respect everyone's personal religious beliefs. However, the original post on this topic elicited comments that could have been construed as offensive.  I do not think this is the forum for such debates.   My mom always told me that two things you never discussed with friends if you wanted to stay that way ...politics and religion.  I like to think we are friends here and we surely do not want to hurt feelings of anyone.

We are here to celebrate who we are...HHS Class of '62. I have enjoyed reading your posts in the past and I look forward to reading updates from you in the future. It's a great place to stay connected.

I hope those of you who can make the trip will join us at Shortways on Friday, October 11 at 7 PM. I have already heard from several people who will be attending.  Can't wait!

I would appreciate your consideration of my request.  :)

Great evening @ Shortway's on Friday the 11th...   It was fun to see HHS "kids" again and spend some time together.  Hopefully, we can do this every year!!   Karen K.
