    I was so sad to come to the realization that this was a classmate of mine, my deepest sympathies go out to Beth’s family and friends!
    Have recently been in touch with one of my close classmates Elaine Clement (Nugent) we are having a great time catching up and come to find out we are both living in Canada! High School was a GREAT time and some of the best memories of my life. We are coming up on 25 years since graduating and I am hoping some way some how some locals may be able to pull together a reunion – I am willing to help from afar as much as possible. Anyone wishing to contact me
