Comments:

2010 has been a hard year. I had a very bad spinal injury/ tennis accident and was in the hospital and PT rehab for 5 1/2 weeks. Am learning to be slow. Not my forte. And then, I had breast cancer. Am well now, PTL!

My Faith is strong, however, and I am working P/T in my counseling biz. Watched the World Cup and Wimbleton, read alot of books---have you read "Outliers"? "Freakonomics"? "Island at the Center of the World"?

School Story:

I have loved all of our reunions that I have attended. I love seeing people I would probably never see otherwise. I love going to our reunion meetings. Its like being back there again.

MHS changed my life. I grew up in a totally conservative Waspy town and when I got off the bus Day One @ G Inness for 9th Grade I felt like I had finally stepped into the Real World. It was exhilarating. My life since then has been a series of adventures---some mesmerizing, some wonderful, some just downright hairy.

Growing up. How and when does that happen? Tell me. All of you. :)

Brooks was my cousin. His grandmother and my grandfather were brother and sister. We grew up in Essex Fells surrounded by literally dozens of cousins and aunts and uncles and houses to visit and dogs and cats to love as family members.We had lots of family parties and we all sang.

We also all went to Essex Fells School through 8th grade, and then we all had to part and go our own ways. Some of us went to Caldwell HS. Some of us went to Day Schools. some of us went to boarding schools. And a few of us luckiest ones went to Montclair High School. Brooks and I were in that group.

One of the major tenets of our Big Family Value System was: always protect each other + always be loyal to one another. Brooks was very good at that. I hope I was too. We were well-taught.

As you can see from his obit, Brooks grow up to become a wonderful man.

Not included in the obit is a picture of the 3 acres or more of lush  lawns and gardens, trees, bushes and  woodland pools that Brooks personally and single-handedly carved out of his all-wooded home-lot in Princeton NJ. Once we had an enormous and splendid feast there. The whole family. It felt like we were in a movie.

I will never forgaet his gracious and gentle nature and his humble spirit.
