Comments: Hello Kathleen. I remember your face so clearly from our early days in school. It was a pleasure to see your note here, and I hope you're in good health and thriving. Were you ever able to attend any of the all-class reunions? In 2007, I chatted with Betty O'Brien, Eileen Fritz, Sandra Kulick, Patricia Taylor, and Michael Connolly. I had not been close friends with anyone in our class, just cordial acquaintances you might say, so it was especially enjoyable to be able to talk with them after so many years. 1955 was a lifetime ago! In my automatic recollection of you, you are smiling - I hope you're still smiling.
Chum was an Aussie term I picked years ago for a contact that also had the same life's experiences.
Roman was a kick and it prepared me for many life's challenges. The black boxes were useful to deter unwanted aggression on the subway.
My father spent 27 years on the job in the PPD several assigned to Rizzo's raiders.
I taught for a year (1969) at St. Stephens and married Christine Conly, you probably know her brother Mike.

Comments: Hey, Ed; I would be interested in that Nun's list you mentioned. Its funny that I can remember all the nun's who taught me, except the 9th grade one, in 1952. I don't think any of them are still around, as I'm 77! OBIE
