After serving a year in Vietnam, and completing college, I moved to NYC
to begin a career in international shipping. I have lived in Europe, Asia and many U.S. cities. I have been happily married for twenty years, have four children, two grandchildren and still enjoy athletics, liberal politics and foreign sports cars.

Do you have a favorite school story, or funny memory? Please share.

I still remember my good friend, Terry Kelly, (may he rest in peace) climbing a tree and looking through the second floor window at his fellow classmates as we all sat in Study Hall.

WE ALL REMEMBER "ON THE WATERFRONT" WHEN THE GREAT MARLON BRANDO SAT IN THE BACK OF A BROOKLYN TAXI CAB AND LOOKED AT HIS BROTHER AND WITH THE SADDEST OF EMOTION IN HIS VOICE SAID "I COULD-A BEEN A CONTENDER"....... THAT IS THE SAME SENTIMENT MOST GUYS THOUGHT ABOUT RICHARD DODSON WHEN THEY SAW HIM HIT A BALL, RUN THE BASES OR CREATE A DOUBLE-PLAY ON THE WAYNE JUNIOR HIGH OR DENBY BASEBALL DIAMONDS --- "THIS GUY IS GOIN' TO BE A MAJOR LEAGUE CONTENDER". ---- THAT AND "DAMN, RICHARD DODSON'S GOT SUCH A HOT SISTER"! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FRIEND - KEEP SWINGING FOR THE FENCES.

RE: MICHAEL "SWAJ" SWAJANEN

I know you were quite close to Swaj so I wanted to share some information I received from Kitty Kelly this morning. (Her E-Mail is csc369@aol.com) Michael has been in the Henry Ford Hospital for three weeks now. He cannot walk and has difficulty recognizing anyone. Kitty is very close to Michael and is trying to get him admitted to the University of Michigan Hospital. It appears he is now losing his swallowing reflex and cannot eat. Kitty sees him everyday and even tries to spoon feed him. I'm sorry for bringing you sad news. Please notify Michaels other Detroit friends so they could also go visit with him.

Nancy, as you enjoyed tea and crumpets at the Savoy in London, we were devouring Coney Islands and orange soda on Lafayette in downtown Detroit. You were missed!
