Happy holiday season to everyone! I apologize for what is a very short column. In the craziness that is life, I forgot about the deadline and to make things worse, I forgot the submission deadline. I think we need to move to an online blog format? Where everyone can just comment once a month? What do you think? Thanks to the classmates who did respond to my late email. To begin, condolences to Nancy Klingensmith Neff Dunn whose husband Jim lost a courageous battle to pancreatic cancer on Oct. 6. Our hearts are with Nancy and her family. Robin Samuelman Kalfaian wrote that she recently celebrated the wedding of her god-daughter Sarah Wilcox to Garrison Moore (Sarah is the daughter of Audrey MacDonald Wilcox ’86. Robin and her husband Jim traveled to Pittsburgh for the wedding along with Lisa O’Brien ’86, Lisa Edwards and Gretchen Miller-Anderson ’86. Robin still teaches kindergarten in Guilford, Conn. Her daughter Kate is a sophomore at Champlain College in Burlington, Vt., and her daughter Annie is currently a high school senior, anxiously awaiting college acceptance letters! Personally, I am not quite sure how Robin’s daughters can be that old.
Pam Barres Fusco is a first-time submitter! She wrote that she is on her second marriage to her husband Tony and they have a 7-year-old boy. She has spent the last 22 years raising four incredible children from her first marriage. Her youngest is 17 years old now and a senior in high school; she also has an 18-year-old who is a freshman at American Univ., in Washington, D.C.; a 20-year-old who is a junior at the Univ. of California, San Diego; and a 22-year-old living in Colorado. Since this is so short, I will add again this time that it was great seeing everyone at the reunion in June. I hope it is not too long until the next one! It was so fun to take a break and just be with the girls again! So, all the best to you and your families for the New Year!
