Hi Buddy !

   I remember you. We used to ride the bus together and you used to live on the corner of Cherokee and Mt. Pleasant Ave. I think your family had a small store at this location. I am in the picture taken with the group and am in the second row on the right as you look at the picture. I am next to Jane Young to the right and am wearing a suit jacket with a headband in my hair. I was the “fat girl” in the class. I am retired now from teaching with the Phila. School District and have a 17 year old daughter. I work in early childhood education now as a head start home visitor. Do you still live in Philly?

   I would also like to reconnect with other class members, I remember June Lee, Gayle Perry, Valerie Burton (I think she has passed away), Deidre Ferguson works in administration for the School District, and Frank Stroup is a minister from what I heard over the years. My daughter also went to Jenks right after MR. Gershman died. Some of the same teachers were there when she began attending.
