Spending time traveling, dancing, singing, playing Bridge and boating (sailing and power boating)and reading makes me wonder how I accomplished anything while working.
After 4 months of fun and sunshine on Florida's southwest gulf coast with Andy, my significant other, I'm heading home to Ohio in time to catch the blooming of the daffodils and hyacinths. Best regards to all, Judy

School Story:

From the moment I walked into Mrs. Meyers's kindergarten class in Lomond Elementary, all those many years ago, school fascinated me. Thanks to good friends and great teachers the memories of those thirteen years remain some of my most cherished.
I remember the first day of 7th grade English class when most of us had difficulty finding our way around the junior high. Miss Snow greeted us in her quivering voice: " Have you ever seen 5'2" of snow in the beginning of September?" Ah, the reams of homework she gave us.... Yet I credit her and Mr. Burnett with teaching me how to write. I still have limited copies of my book, "Celebration of Life, The Alfred Tibor Story".
In high school Spanish, Mr. Fumero always made us laugh. One of his favorite expressions was " That's the way the cookies are in the jar."
As I approach my next birthday, I'm ever thankful for having done so much marching on the football field that the legs are still working and that even with the passage of time the memories haven't faded.

Happy Birthday, Linda! Hope the year brings you lots of healthy and happy. My great niece Alyssa
is a sophomore in high school. She recently won 3rd place in a national baton championship doing routines that leaves me with my mouth open.

Hope your birthday was exceptionally happy, Stu!. Sorry I missed it. Birthdays seem to be coming around much too quickly. My sister Ruth and I were talking about our days as majorettes. I mentioned that you not only still play clarinet but collect them. She asked if you are related to William Hirsch who went to school with her (and played clarinet).

Val, I hope your birthday is filled with lots of wonderful surprises. Love, Judy

Dear Rena,  

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.  Gary and I remained close friends through our days at Shaker High and the years that followed. I remember how delighted we both were to spend time together as I finished my senior year at Pitt and he began medical school there.  I will always remember him as the warm, brilliant, funny friend I knew.  May his memory be as a blessing.  Best Regards, Judy Perry Kurimai

What a fabulous job you did with all the photos, Stu! I can really appreciate them now after my first cataract surgery. One more week till # 2 and I'll be able to see them in blazing color. Hope your summer is filled with all the things you love to do. Judy
