Since I haven't stayed in touch, much has happened since we graduated. My freshman year I was a journalism major at Auburn University and transferred to the University of Florida. I arrived in Gainesville right around the time Anita Bryant ("Come to the Florida sunshine tree for fresh tasting orange juice with vitamin C...") decided it was time to Save Our Children from Homosexuals. Disco ruled and it was fun while it lasted.
I left abruptly in May of 1978 and returned home to help take care of our Dad who had a rare form of brain cancer. He passed in Sept. of 1980 after a 25 years battle with that cancer. It was very difficult but I'm grateful I had the opportunity to help take care of the man who had provided so well for us.
After he passed, I took courses at NVCC to get my Associates degree and bring up my GPA. I transferred to The Catholic University here in Washington where I earned my Bachelors in drama. I was active with Source Theatre Company, The Studio Theatre, and The (defunct) Castle Arts Center for some time.
Most of my other work experience has been in customer service and sales. You could say I burned out on them. I will be taking classes at UDC in graphic and possibly interior design as I'd like to come out of retirement and relocate to the west coast where the climate is better for me. I hope the years have been kind to you all. It's truly sad how many of our classmates are no longer with us.

STEVE SLOANE has left an In Memory comment for PERRY ST RAYMOND.

I first met Perry in 7th grade at Glasgow. I learned he had gone to Sleepy Hollow in 6th grade and befriended one of my good freinds from there, John Banks. I had gone to Beech Tree in 6th grade. Me and my bestie from Beech Tree, John Shenk, came walking into class the first day of school and there was John Banks with some guy I hadn't met. It was Perry. The four of us became the clique of 7-12. Perry was a great guy to talk to. He was interesting and knew a lot of cool stuff. Our relationship was a little contentious for awhile but those things pass. The last time I saw him was around 1988 when a hoard of people who had gone to Stuart at around the same time converged on Joe Theisman's. Perry couldn't have been nicer and told Sarah Tees and I that if we ever got down to New Orleans we had a friend there. I thought it was intersting that both Perry and John Banks had become lawyers. May he rest in peace with his sister Dionne and mother Jeanne, whom I also knew and liked, as well as his dad, Bernard (Barney).

I had known Mark Temple since Sleepy Hollow School. He lived the next neighborhood over from where my family lived. When he was a 5th grader in Mrs. Jacobsen's class, she invited our (Mrs. Forsyth's) class over and Mark and his crew played air guitar and lip-synced to Snoopy and the Red Baron. When I was in 7th grade, me and my bestie, Andy Milliken, broke all the windows at Bath & Racquet after it closed and school had started. We would go running across the parking lot shrieking with laughter after we broke them. One Friday evening I got an anonymous phone call from somebody who said, "This is a freind of yours. I know about those windows at Bath & Racquet." I freaked out! At first I didn't recognize the voice. My brother said it sounded like Mark Temple. When I ran into him about a year later I thought, "Yeah! That was the voice!" Strange thing is neither of us ever brought that back up. At Stuart, he never hassled me like many others did. For the most part, he was a real stand up guy. May he rest in peace!

Gary Lutz was one of the nicest guys I've ever known. I never heard an unkind word from his mouth and never heard anyone say anything unkind about him. He was always there to lend a helping hand to whomever needed it. He was a truly good natured, good humored guy.

I met Lynn "Mitch" Ghormley in 8th grade. We were both on the crew team at Stuart. I think his family moved after our Junior year but I could be wrong. He was always one of the nicest guys around and was not concerned with following the trends but got along with everybody anyway. May he rest in peace.

I remember while as a student at Glasgow coming to the Stuart football games while Debbie was a cheerleader. I thought she was a total knock-out and watched her as much as the games. Along with her contemporaries Dru Windham and Robin Dennis, Debbie was a remarkably beautiful girl.
