Moved to Hanover, NH in 1975 (still our home base), left banking in 1981 to join small (now large) manufacturing firm as VP Finance. We retired in 2004 to travel (we are experienced home exchangers with trips around the world using this great way to travel) and to enjoy our 13 grandchildren. Active here in several charities. Spending winters in Venice, FL, summers at the family homestead at Lake George, NY, and a month each year in Brigid's home town of Glasgow, Scotland. Still singing with The Charades, an a capella doo-wop quartet doing the songs we all remember from the 50's and 60's.

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.

Happy birthday to us, late for you and early for me. We shared a lot of them in earlier times. We have kids in Kennebunkport now so maybe that NH/ME reunion is closer to being a reality.

Happy birthday John! Remember when we used to share a birthday party on Stanford Place (mine is the 20th)? Your house and my grandparents' were almost across the street. What did your father have - a cotton-candy machine? And we ended up playing MHS football together, I think we were the two defensive ends on the Commandos, the 10th grade team. Just doesn't seem that long ago.
