My 30th and your 45th reunion are coming up in June; both impressive landmarks! I hope that you will be there as it would be great to meet and get a sail in with you.
Best regards,
Jamie '79

Lee then rhymes with the..........and not fearful symmetry.... It's nice to hear that you could share that experience with your children. I remember you well and always thought you'd be an artist(musician). I believe I remember you father came and played at vespers. Good
luck with your novel. Tom Wolff
