October 6, 2006

October 6, 2006

We were all good friends during our teenage years. We gathered last year for Kenneth Clay's funeral in our hometown, New York City. It was the first time many of us had seen each other in 30 years or more.

We will get to spend a little more time together in Charleston SC, this weekend, at our mini reunion.

We expect nine of us to be there, ten if you count Kenny whose spirit will surely be with us. I am looking forward to hearing about the paths each of the guys have traveled since we left high school and went our separate ways.

I love how you put Kenny in the sky. He surely will be with you all. Everyone looks great and I am sorry you had to get together under the circumstances. Enjoy your time together again! Vote on this shot!

Fantastic David
Been searching for some our old neighborhood friends for a few years without any luck

this looks wonderful . . .I think I enjoy these "friends reunions" much more than high school ones. These are the people you stay in touch with and it means so much more
HS reunions have lost their flair
I'll be looking fwd to seeing what you post from the gathering
Hope you have loads of good times, good conversations,& good eats

Outstanding work Dave. Have a great time. I spent a number of years in Charleston, and while I'm originally from Savannah I consider Charleston home...
