In March of this year I underwent open heart surgery and my recovery continues to go well. I am grateful to be alive with no other indications of ill health on the horizon at this time, I live in Northfield, MA with my wife Nancy and we are temporary home to one of our grand daughters Briitney Ames She is a Junior at Stoneleigh-Burnham, Her Dad is a single dad in the Marine Corps who has served us all well in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I drive by our campus from time to time with grateful recollections tempered by the suspicion that the Quid is still watching me – and scowling. . I ran into Bob Merriam last year. He hasn’t changed a bit! He and David Pond are the last at Deerfield that I have known personally. Best regards to all my classmates. I will try and come to our next reunion.
