I am in shock also. It was only about two or three weeks ago we saw Robert and  his wife and friends at a local Italian Restaurant. We would see them there quite often on Saturday nights. Rest in Peace Robert, condolence to the family, and thanks for being a friend.

All you other classmates. Take care and know you have not been forgotten by your other classmates, even though we may not communicate on a regular basis.

Grace and Peace to all.

I am saddened to again learn of the passing of one of our classmates. I had a class with Brenda, and we became friends somewhat in that class. I flirted with her, which I am sure many of you other guys did too. She was so Cute. I did not know of her illness, I am sorry.  Nancy, it is so wonderful to have and be a friend such as you in these times of need. I only hope, when and if, I ever have to help a friend I can be as compassionate as you.

Grace and peace to all, and may God continue to bless you.
