I watched the salute honoring the Class of 2020 on May 16. I was impressed with the many hours of preparation, variety of students and others taking time to make it a memorable event.
I believe that my 92nd birthday on April 28, 2020, was the best one yet! Aging certainly makes it more important and appreciated.

I wish to thank everyone for the many phone calls, cards and messages I received for my 90th birthday.
I would like to thank everyone for the cards, notes, and letters sent in celebration of my 90th birthday.
