I know you and Barry are sharing memories with Doug, Slay' and our other friends, who no doubt welcomed your arrival . We will all be telling each other lies again, one of these days. Until we meet again my friend, we're going to miss you down here.

One of the first fellow students I met when I was enrolling at RBHS in Oct 57. I had just transferred from Northboro and he knew a couple of the people I went to school with. Always a friendly smile and later in life if I ran into him someplace always asked how everything was going. R.I.P. My friend.

I am sorry to hear about "Buddy". Years ago I would occasionally run into him in the test area out at Pratt & Whitney. He worked for one of the sub-contractors we called in to to retro-fit the jet engine stands. Naturally we talked about high school and all the old gang of guys in mechanical drawing class. Buddy was the nicest one and I'm positive everyone else would agree. I'm sure he will be greatly missed by many of his relatives and peers. RIP "Buddy"
