Happy birthday, my friend since Watchung! Interesting to read your bio, we share the same admiration for Pres Obama. We'd have a great dinner discussion.

He was in our card-playing, basketball-shooting, fooling around group.  Just a fun guy to be with.  So sad.

Happy birthday next weekend, Johnny. I'm happy to see you're happily remarried after the tragedy of losing your wife (my story too).

Happy birthday, Kent, the day after mine and to a friend I always admired. I always enjoyed visiting you in college. I can see you ended up as far from Harvard as I did from Dartmouth. Hope you are well and happy.

Happy Birthday, my old friend from our younger years. It would be great to get together sometime and remember how it was growing up in Montclair NJ.

Happy birthday, old friend. I forgot you were such a youngster!

I have just finished watching a TV story on the Andy Muns case, featured on 20/20 on OWN Network.  Amazingly, I was just passing by the room where my wife was watching when I heard "He graduated from Montclair, New Jersey High School in 1961"  The show detailed what Andy's sister related on this webpage.  But as a further update, the perpetrator's confession was finally allowed as evidence in court.  He pled guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to four years in prison.  He was released upon completion of his sentence in, I believe, 2009.  Andy was a good friend in high school, one of those "All-American" kids, so it was nice to see this resolved and watch him get a burial with full military honors ln Arlington National Cemetery at the conclusion of the program.

Happy birthday, Dave. I don't think I've seen you since graduation. I did notice you are living Schroon Lake. My family's had a summer place on a Lake George island for over 100 years - that makes us neighbors!

Wow, this is a tough one.  Some people you just don't think you will ever lose.  I went all the way through school with Gary - kickball at Watchung, our George Inness basketball team that lost in the finals to Ben Mobley's team, football at MHS where I occasionally got to block on a "9" play that sent Gary around right end (usually with devastating results to the opposition).  And to top it off, he was a great guy. Gary, Chris Reese, and I had to deliver speeches at Walter Courtney's retirement (1961?) and now they are both gone.  Very sad.
