I went to a wedding on LI last weekend and passed Kathy's (also Mine, Betty Zeitler, Regina Kerr, Al Hope and Dennis Foley's) homes. We all lived in the same 'subdivision' (not sure they called it that in the 50's) and one of my brothers drove my Mom and I past and took pictures of all the homes we lived in years ago. We even went to the 'home' my Dad lived in (Holly Patterson) Uniondale. He passed away there in 1973 and there was a plaque on the wall that my brother remembered. We asked about it at the front desk and they didn't know anything about it (much younger employees) but said we could look around, which we did. I guess if you work in a place and pass by something each day you do not really see it..... this was on the wall at what was the main entrance years ago. We were so happy to see it was still there. Very touching, but sad, to remember my Dad spent so many years paralyzed from Polio. My brother asked if they ever decided to remove the plaque, could he have it.... I was amazed it was still there after all these years, especially since no one seemed to know who he was....

It is inspiring to know that some of our classmates still have parents living. For most of us, we have lived without our parents for years and still miss their presence in our lives. On March 11th, Judy Cottrell Wolter's father will be 92 years old. He still lives alone in his own home in Virginia Beach. This picture of him and Judy was taken last year on his birthday.
I just had to share this great picture of Honey and her ninety five year old mother. (the power lifter and line dance instructor!) They were having brunch this week. 12/25/16

Congratulations to Mary Ann (Lavery) and Harry Turk who are expecting their third great-granddaughter. As you can clearly see from this sonogram, she is going to be a beauty. This technology was not available to us when we were raising our families. Nor did we have any clue as to the gender of the baby. We have seen so much change in our lifetime. 3/7/16

I have shared that my dad was having his 100th birthday in November 2013. This photo was taken last week. In addition to a Comedy Club party for 75 people, dinners and brunch, a tree was planted at the Community Center in his honor. The mayor of Dunwoody, GA. gave him a key to the city and he was written up in most local papers. I am sharing this photo of my husband Alan, me and my dad for all to see how fabulous 100 can be! He is standing, gave a short speech and enjoyed a lunch for 50 people and a trivia game about his life. A model for all of us. Which leads me to wishing all of you a happy, healthy holiday season.

It has been an exceptionally mild winter here in New York. Some of you may have read about the bitter cold weather that Europe has been experiencing. That's why I had to share this photo of Honey Cottrell's grandson Nolan, who lives in Bitburg, Germany. It was taken on the way out the door to school on a two below zero degrees morning. I hope for Honey's sake the weather warms up before she and Tom arrive there next month.
Hi guys, This is the reason that I've been out of touch for the last couple of weeks--a pretty good excuse, actually, I think! Sonya was born on Friday, Aug. 29 at 9:32pm. She weighed 6lbs, 12 oz and was 19". She and Sami are doing fine. Alan and I are tired, but still functioning, and are very happy. Love, Jessica Joseph Gest
