    Jack, I have been wondering about some of our classmates at EHS. I have lost touch with them and was thinking that perhaps you would know their whereabouts and/or if they are still living in Edwardsville. I want to congratulate you on your honor last March. Can you believe that it has been seventy years ago that we were seniors at EHS. Remember the thrill and excitement of going to the IHSA state basketball tournament. My current address is 301 Tremont Street, Odell, IL. I still have Rt 66 connection as Rt 66 goes directly in front of my home. I hope you are well and enjoying your senior years. I do have a landline phone. As ever, Dee
