Happy Birthday, Tim.

It was nice to hear that someone remembered George from St. David. He was a pretty quiet guy back then, but I renewed my friendship with him years later. He turned out to be an outstanding person in spite of his childhood hardships. It is comforting to know that you will keep him in your prayers. George would love that.

I realize that most of our classmates are from the Philly area, so I thought I'd give a few insights into flying in from out of state. As this week progresses, I get more excited, but also more nervous about what to pack. This is a problem because of the airlines charging for checked baggage & the chance of losing it. In addition, we are planning on taking the SEPTA Media Line, after breakfast on Sunday, to my sister's home in Glen Mills/Thornton, so one rolling bag each is about all we can handle on the train. I discovered that our hotel does NOT provide transportation to the hotel from the airport, but found that for $10 each you can take the Liberty shuttle to the Marriott. Sounds like a good deal to me. I have some difficulty walking distances due to back surgeries, bad knees, etc etc, but I'm bringing my pain pills. LOL I am so looking forward to seeing those I know & remember & those who may be new to me. We have all had the shared experience of being together for several years at McDevitt & that is something very special. See ya'll this weekend. I have two pictures from the 25th, one from St David's Reunion & one taken in June when I was last in PA for my nieces wedding. Anyone recognize themselves?

Hi, Bev! I remember you well, but you are 17 in my mind, as are most classmates listed here. Teri Foley told me you sent greetings to me & I appreciate you remembering me. Hope I recognize you at the Reunion, but if I don't, please stop me & introduce yourself.
