Dear Friends,

I'm typing here overcome by the fact that I remember classmates from 2 classes, B & A, 60 years ago!!! No wonder I went into the Detective Bureau of the NYPD!!! Not one of these good people were ever sought by the NYPD. They were the best! If I have made any mistakes on the ID, please let me know via e-mail ( and if you want to renew our friendship which you should!, please e-mail me forthwith! I have all good memories of all present in the photo! God bless!
