Comments: I found out last week that Sister Clare Annice, my sixth grade teacher, is in hospice care. She and Sister Catherine Margaret were my favorite teachers and the two women in my time at SSS whom I admired most. I chatted with her at the 2007 all-class reunion, and in 2013 I visited her at Conwell-Egan High School.
Comments: Clair Norrington. Really great to see your entry.Don't know if I told you this at the reunion a while back,but one of my best days as a Firefighter was when we responded to a fire on Bott St.(Ithink it was the house where the Ferizzi family used to live)and after the fire we were returning to the firehouse and I saw your mom sitting on her step. I was driving the Ladder truck & I told my boss that I had to say hello to your mom.We chatted for a couple of minutes but the westbound traffic on Lycoming St. was backing up to Broad St,so i kissed her good bye & that was the last time I saw her.GREAT MEMORIES.

Comments: For those of you who are still stopping by this site, I just sent in a picture of my fifth grade class in 1952. Check the class pictures section of our photo collection. Sister Saint Raphael taught us. Thanks to Joanne Marczak Podulka for sending a copy of the class picture to me. Some of you class of 1955 people must remember her; she grew up in Nicetown. Joanne contacted me this past summer. While looking on the internet for one of her relatives with whom she had lost contact, she decided to google her own name. She was surprised to find her name in an entry I had written several years ago in this guest book. She emailed me and we've had several conversations since then. Turns out she married one of my neighbors on Nice Street. Talk about coincidences and surprising connections!
Comments: Happy days growing up in the 50's and going to St. Stephen's.

Comments: For some unknown reason I clicked on this site today and saw my birthday greeting from 4 of my favorite guys. I am so happy that nothing has changed your friendship. Love to come up for a reunion. Funny thing happened while I was attending a church brunch recently. I was speaking with one of the SOUTHERN gentlemen there and happened to mention that I was from Philly. He said he was familiar with a section called Nicetown and his DADDY was the boss at Midvale Steel. I told him I was born and grew up in Nicetown but not near the mill but in the much more classy section LOL. Small world. Thanks for the birthday greeting.
