    Sorry to hear of Connie's passing.  The Class of 1964 was together June 29, right before.  It was good to see some classmates and former teachers.  The Heberlings were there too, and David Dodd.  I also enjoyed going to McDonalds and seeing if I knew anyone from the old days.  Deepest sympathies to Sherry and family.  Carol Krbavac
