Hello classmates, I really would love to attend this remarkable 60th reunion. Unfortunately, even as I emailed you, Wayne, last September, requesting that you take into consideration the dates of the high Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, both in September, you have scheduled the reunion on the first night of Rosh Hashanah. A previous reunion was scheduled on Yom Kippur; I therefore requested your kind consideration for this occasion. Sadly, I will not attend. Jackie Oliver Cohen

HELLO CLASS OF 63!  Be on the lookout for an email from my work email address:  Wayne and I are looking forward to hosting a Mini Class Reunion on September 15 at the VFW in Lower Burrell, starting around 5:00 PM. We will have the large meeting room on the first foor once again to accommodate those who are physically challenged.  There will also be a golf game that you can sign up for...time and place to be determined. Food and drinks will be on your own as usual.

If you did not receive an email from me recently, that means we do not have your current email address, so please send that, and any other current contact information, to me at my personal email:  We hope many of you can make it.  Let us know if you have any questions. Have a Blessed Easter and Passover!

MAY DAY - MAY DAY!!!  I still don't know why that is an emergency call (perhaps someone in the GREAT Class of 63 can edumacate us!!!).  Any way it is May 1st. Which means only 138 days until our BIG BANG Reunion on Friday Sept 15 at the VFW in Lower Burrell.  Pleas keep Yvonne or me informed of your good intentions (not cruel intentions).  So far we have about 35 positive responses, which is very encouraging, but we can do better.  And remember we plan to have a golf outing for those interested that morning,  Reunion starts at 5:00 PM ( that's 1700 for you military types) and will last until the last guy or gall standing - which at our age will probably be before 1000.  Our contact info is listed in previous messages - easy to find.  And you can always leave a message on this web site!  Looking forward to a great time.  Cheers!  Wayne

Actually Wayne, 
May Day is an English mid understanding of the French 

word for help. aide pronounced aide and allied people thought they heard May Day.

Wayne Schuricht

Thanks Tom, I knew someone would educate us.  So the term mayday is similar to the french term "m'aidez" which translates  as "help me".  Good info to know!  Thanks

Tom impressed me from 7th grade on with his wisdom and knowledge.  He continues to do so 60 years later.

I wish it was wisdom but in the effort to creat new pathways in the brain to stave off rot, I have been using Rosette Stone in French. It's a losing battle.

Sorry, but I have some sad news to share.  Steve Widmer passed away today at his home in South Carolina.  This was sudden and totally unexpected.  He was in good health and had no underlying problems except for high Cholesterol.  I spoke with Barbara (Lobur) and she found him lying on the kitchen floor.  He had just cut the grass.  I know this is tragic news for all of us.  If your are inclined please say a little prayer for Steve, may his soul rest in eternal peace!

So sorry to hear of Steve Widmer's passing.  Sincere condolences to Barb Lobur and his family. May he rest in peace.

What a terrible reminder that every day is a blessing. Steve Widmer and I were friends from grade school in Lower Burrell. Never knew anyone with a better sense of humor. My dad was close to his father and was a steady customer at the family's service station on Leechburg Road and Braeburn Road. My wish for Barbara is that the pain of her loss be replaced soon by nothing but good memories with Steve, like I have.

I went to grade school with Steve all through to 9th grade. My dad and his dad were great friends and my dad only bought gasoline from there service station. Steve was quiet but a very nice guy. My deepest sympathy to Barbara and the family. Jinky Maxwell Sapinsky

Again another shocking passing from our class of 63.  I remember Steve as a friendly and personable classmate.  Always positive and encouraging.  Barb and Steve shared and lived many great years together.  We are thankful for that but we also appreciate life.  Our thoughts, prayers and condolences go out to Barb at this time.  As Betty stated it reminds me to live each day to it's fullest.  Roger

I was so sad to hear of Steve's passing. I've know him since 1st grade. He was my friend and married my friend Barb. He was always kind to me. Our parents were friends. I'm really going to miss him. It's hard to imagine, he's no longer with us. Barb, I'm holding you, Jeff and Susie close to my heart. RIP my dear Steve.

Sandy and I shared a birthdate, which was always a fun thing between us.  When I was expelled as a result of the "event"  in the auditorium toward the end of our junior year, I was a bit embarrassed and was not planning on going to our junior prom .  But Sandy called me and asked me to go with her. What a great jesture on her part. Rest in peace my friend.

OK fellow 63er''s.  Only 107 days left before our 60th reunion on Sept 15 at the VFW in Lower Burrell, So time to makes your plans.  DON'T PROCRASTINATE!!!  With the recent passing of our Classmates Sandi Darrall and Steve Widmer it is evident that our time to gather and share our lives and memories is running out.  So if you haven't given serious thought to coming, please do.  Starts at 5:00PM (that's 1700 for you military types) and will last until the last man or woman standing - which at our age will probably be 10:00 (2200).  And don't forget we are planning a golf outing that morning for those interested.  No reservations or RSVP is required but it would be helpful if you let Yvonne or me know your intentions, especially if you want to play golf (it will be a scramble - probably at Birdsfoot).  Our contact info is available in multiple post on this message forum.  I hope we have a marvelous turnout and I look forward to meeting with each and everyone of you!  Wayne
