    It would be interesting to see what became of all of us after 60 years.
    Would any of us recognize each other? I can still picture most everyone,

        I did see a class picture on the web about 5 years ago, can’t remember where and can’t
        find it again. I do look occasionally and if I ever find it again I will post it.
        Perhaps another class member will see this site and have the picture?

    We had the best class of ‘ 56 and the best friends. Wish we could go back and hug each other. Miss you all. Sharon Drinkwaard Barthel living in Phoenix, AZ since 1972.
