I transferred into the Shaker School system in the 10th grade, so I lack the deep roots that so many of you have. To catch up: My wife, Pat, fell and broke her skull in 2016. She never regained consciousness, so I am a widower. My mom lives in Judson Manor (assisted living) on East 107th Street near University Circle. She will be 103 in March. She has dementia, but she still knows me and my two brothers. I try to visit her as often as feasible. Mom's sister, Judge Jean Murrell Capers, died in July, 2017 at the age of 104. I was at the ceremony when the City renamed tennis courts (at about Euclid and MLK) for her. Aunt Jean really liked that. Congresswoman Fudge and Mayor Jackson spoke at Aunt Jean's memorial service. I recently visited and have information about classmate Jewell Smith (Jenkins), but I need to get her permission before I share it. As for me, I thought that giving up cigarettes in 2003 meant that I would be spared from lung cancer. Wrong! The upper right lobe was removed May 22, 2018. The six month follow-up showed there is still more. I will begin chemo and radiation treatments on 2/4/2019. Until the side effects from the treatments kick in, I feel strong and healthy and happy. I still sing - mostly show tunes in piano bars at least once per week. That will likely diminish after the cancer treatments. The best email to reach me is paul_m_rose@sonic.net. Regards to all from San Francisco.

Dave was one of 5 or 6 of us  that hung out  during. School. We lost contact when he went to college, got married,  and I went into the Navy.

The last time I saw Dave, I had gone back to school at Miani after the Navy, in 67,  and went down to visit Ray Schloss at Ft Knox, in Kentucky. Ray was finishing up Armor School and was soon to go to Germany. . We ran into Dave in one ot the Bat. Offices, I guess. He had received orders for the Nam, and was finishing up his affairs at Knox. We had a brief meet and greet, hand shakes, and  he said goodby, and headed out the door. 

Not much was said for all the time we all had spent together during School. But then again, time had passed, and his was now a different mission.  Will not forget that door closing . Final view.  You never know.

I have visited him at " The Wall ".  Always an emotional event, even after all these years.

Gerald Sindell posted about his novel; I wrote one self-published in2015-6, not sure if I mentioned it here, I'm usually pretty busy, lately getting beat in Democratic primary for MO2nd Congress, votebillhaas.com by my two opponents $1.2M, But it's pinkcollarblue.com and available Amazon/Kindle if anyone interested. A story of love and politics, two things I seem to know nothing about. And you know it's fiction b/c he gets the girl, wins his office, and there's some (3 pages max) sex. love to all. Did you know my high school sweetheard, Steffany Sellers, later PHD psychology, with whom I reconnected b/ her two marriages, was killed in some sort of accident, I presume, off a Georgia Island a couple years ago. I cant find anything about it. Anyone know anything? not that it matters; made me so sad; loved her then and always will; and was FB friends with Marci Dolin in California for a while; cant find her now; that always concerns me, you know. Not having much of a life but still trying. Nothing a big lottery win wont help. So god asks, would you rather have love, lottery win or political success, and I say, "How big a lottery win?"

Since your line is always busy on your birthday, I thought that our class website would be a better idea. What is your snail-mail address in case I want to send you a birthday cars, or something? here's a greeting from one damaged brain to another.

Love ya--
