From Diane’s 45th reunion greeting to classmates…
Forty-five years seems like an awfully long time ago! My four children are all married (one in Fairfield, one in Easton, one in Florida and one in North Carolina). I have nine wonderful grandchildren, and Bill is “almost retired”. This winter or next spring we will probably be moving south for the winters so Bill can boat and fish all winter long! I’ll continue to do volunteer work and enjoy my free time. A few health problems have helped me realize how precious each day really is!”
