"A reunion. . .it's a wonderful thing that we can come back together and feel what it does for us. Yesterday's reality forgotten. . .if not forgotten, forgiven. We get the wonderful opportunity to come back 'home.' How many people get to say, 'Last night I had dinner with fifty of my old friends'?

"We should do this, for them and for ourselves, while time continues to arrange our affairs without our consultation. The kids we knew in school, the same ones we envied, criticized, or made fun of, now offer us a spiritual link to our youth...those exciting and playful times, endless opportunities and futures
. . .no end in sight. . .tangible evidence of our lives. We leave them with love and hope."
