That picture of Washington School takes me back to the times of Huffy, Snell, Didget and me. We'd walk home from school together. Had a great time recreating the civil war. I think I was the only one that wore a Rebel Cap. Sledding at the State Street Park, football in front of the Blind School, softball at the armory.

You always think you will see someone again, and it's quite a shock when you realize that can't happen.

These memories are immortal.

Thanks Didge.

He was a great guy. I am a better person because of him. I remember in one band concert(we both played baritones) that we got laughing so hard we couldn't play. Luckily we could put our big instruments in front of us so Mr. Crook couldn't see us, or at least we thought he couldn't.
