Sorry to have missed the 40th reunion. My Mom passed away in September and I've been dealing with the grief. "It's a process." Hope to make the 50th.

Sorry for your loss. Both my parents have been gone for a while. You feel just a bit more lonely and see the book has been mostly read. I hope to see you for the 50th.

Hi Kathy,

Sorry about your mom. I lost my dad 24 years ago and mom 7 years ago and I still miss them terribly.I can reassure you though in time the pain lessens to a soft spot in your heart instead of a painful spot in your heart.Treasure all your memories and have faith in the promise of Jesus to be joined again! Hope to see you at the next reunion.

God Bless

Laurie

In Gil Petrie's Biology class, Steve Quigley was mouthing off in the back row with some other football players.  Mr. Petrie had a long wooden pointer with a rubber tip in his hand.  In an attempt to quiet Steve down, he waived the pointer at Steve. The tip flew off, sailed down the entire length of the room, and hit Steve square in the forehead right between his eyes. We all broke out in hysterics, and Steve yelled something like, "I know I was making noise, but I didn't deserve corporal punishment!", and we roared again.  Mr. Petrie was so embarrassed, and apologized profusely.

Message for Dave Johnston,

 

I just finished radiation after chemo. It was a bit of a shock getting the first news. You seem to have a good attitude. That helps and a good team of MD's to work with. Be Strong.

I'm a two time breast cancer survivor. It is a shock when you hear the word cancer but I accepted it immediately. I look at it as something I need to manage such as diabetes, heart disease or whatever life hands you. I have a deep faith and know that I was given a second chance. Since my second diagnosis I have two new grandaughters! I keep going, working 2 jobs. However, I'm thinking about retiring soon. Life is so short and I'm beginning to realize what's really important and it's not work, it's family. Having been through so much on my own, I know how tough it can be. I have never had chemo, (I refuse) but have been thru radiation a couple of times. No matter what life hands you, you soon realize how much inner strength you really have. If anyone is going through a difficult time, feel free to contact me. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone that's been down that road. I was told I had about six months 2 1/2 years ago! We're all terminal, no one's leaving this earth alive! I know when it's my time, God will take me. Until then, I try to enjoy every day and be grateful for everything I have. Take care.

Only once for me and as cancers go, I was luck.  Caught it early, a bit of radiation and 15 years clear.   Think the older we get the more these things crop up, just like disfunctional families.   Didn't thimk my family was that wierd until we moved into middle age.  didnt think these diseases were around when we were little, but maybe we just didn't realize it.  

Went to Pittsford last month and after a visit to my dad, had lunch at Hick's and McCarthy's.  Even that has changed.... What's the world coming to...Carrolls and Don & Bobs are gone, Hicks is a really good restaurant we all have grey hair and muffin tops.....I want to go back to Kansas dorothy!

My borther Mark Rosenbaum, some of you may have known him, was a year behind us. He had Hodgkins Disease while in law school at Buffalo. He died about 10 years ago because of a weakened heart due to the large amounts of radiation back then (the standard is much less today). Just wondering if those of you in cancer research know if there is a higher incidence of cancers in upstate NY than in othe parts of the country for people who came of age in the 1960s-early 70s.

Hi Everyone,

I am sorry to read of all the illness so many of you have had and the tragic incident for Victor.My heart goes out to you all.

I want to share with you that the beautiful young girl,AnnaRose Shove, who was murdered this summer and you just heard about on the news this week was my niece. She is the daughter of my husband's sister.She lived next door to us since she was born and was like our second daughter. She was extremely talented,bright,loving and compassionate to people and animals. She only wanted to make people happy.She was to be a senior this year at Wayne Central. We love her very much.

We are very sad and angry and hope justice will prevail for AnnaRose.I  hope that one day we stop parolling people who are dangerous to our children.I don't know who to contact yet about changing things but I plan to try. AnnaRose and her family loved Brennan Beach and been going there since she was a little girl.My daughter went with her many times.She should of been safe there! When will this stop and our children and grandchildren can be safe!

Please keep our family in thoughts and prayers and you and your family stay safe

Hi Laurie,

Sorry to learn of your loss. I'm glad they appear to have the culprit in custody and hope that, if guilty, the system will see that he is never able to do anything like this again.

If you'd like, I can repost your message over on the Class of 1972 page on Facebook for those that don't visit here frequently. Please let me know.

Best wishes to you and yours.

Bob Ward

Laurie,

So tragic and so preventable...how many more will fall victims to a system that is broken? She was a beautiful young girl with the world ahead of her. I'm truly sorry for your loss and for the community's loss of a young girl just starting to pursue life. The best you can do is remember and advocate and it sounds like you've started to do both.

  Hi Bob,
Thank you!! I hope you and yours are well! 

Do you remember last year I told you about my 17 year old niece who was murdered while camping with her family. I could not say much then but we finished the trial in December and he was convicted of second degree murder .We went to Oswego County court today for his sentencing. He received the maximum which is 25 years to life. He is a monster so hopefully he will be in prison for life. He should never be able to hurt another girl again! You may see it on the news today. 
Not a fun way to celebrate a birthday but I don't care as it was a great gift to me for the judge to sentence him with the maximum sentence. My niece, AnnaRose, was a joy to us and everyone who knew her. We miss her very much.

This monster was out on parole when he did this. We need to make our parole system more regulated and keep dangerous people in jail! Also if anyone sees anything suspicious please call the police. If one person had called 911 and reported the suspicious nature of this man we may still have AnnaRose.

Last time you asked if you could post this on our class Facebook and I declined but now you can if you want.

Thank you Bob and take care yourself!
Laurie

Happy same-day-as-mine Birthday Laurie. Thanks you for informing me of the Judge's verdict and the person who did this tragic hing got what he deserved. Hope you can now finally go on with things and be at peace.

Laurie Lupinetti (Brooks)

Happy Birthday Bob! I did not realize we had the same day. We are social security worthy! :) I do not plan to retire yet. I still love my job at the same dentist office for close to 34 years. I have grown up with the patients there. I hope you had a great day and enjoy life in whatever makes you most happy! Thank you for your condolences regarding my niece. She was an awesome young lady!

Laurie so sorry to hear of your loss.  I just checked back into this site and heard the news a bit late.  I was wondering why you had left facebook.

I was the victim of an attempted murder in March 1985, Thank God I had self defense training from the military and was able to fight off my assailant and survive.  

Parents of Murdered Children was a great support group for me.  I notice there isn't one in your area.  You can start one:  http://www.pomc.com/chapters.html.  

Here they worked with local law enforcement...at the time I was assaullted prostitutes were receiving longer sentences than murderers and child molesters...they brought about change.  My assailant had been convicted of murdering another woman a year prior to my assault, he had only served one year!  

You have to find a group or someone you can relate to on this to heel or take action to help others.

Hi Sue!!

How are you?

Thank you for your sympathies and information. I am very sorry you suffered through such a terrible event. Thank goodness you were able to protect yourself. I have said a hundred times or more I wish my niece knew martial arts.

I will research the website you sent me. One thing I always tell people now is be aware and report anything suspicious. Many witnesses at the trial saw the monster who killed my niece and were suspicious of him but no one called 911 or questioned him. They truly regret not reporting him.

We all miss AnnaRose very much!  We started a scholarship in her memory at Wayne Central and at Wayne Tech Center where she was studying cosmetology. We have had very successful fundraisers and there is enough funded to give a scholarship at schools for many years. The main requirement is the person who wins is kind and thoughtful like AnnaRose was.

On a lighter note, remember the birthday parties at my house?  I have a great picture of many of us, including you, on the sofa at my house sitting on the back of it. I think it was my 13th birthday so that is 50 years ago this Friday!!  If I remember correctly we had a rock band in the living room for the party! LOL!  Those were truly the days! Also all the horse activities! Pretty carefree! 

Thanks again Sue for reaching out to me and sharing your story.Take care yourself! Laurie

We all need to pray and work together for a better world for our children's future. Let's all get along and care for one another with compassion, peace, love and charity.

Congratulatons to Al Vyverberg on his retirement from coaching McQuaid! There is a great article in the D&C about him. You can find it on line  Wednesday Feb.15th. We should all be very proud of him!
