A letter to the class from Nadine Harbert

April 10, 2008

Dear Class

I think that I have been to every class reunion since it's inception and to think that I will miss this very special one makes me so sad.

I have your third grade class picture and look at it from time to time and remember most of the class and with great fondness,

One special little fellow is missing from the picture------he must have been absent that day----- but I do remember soooooo well. Can you guess who? J.C. Moore! And then I have had the pleasure of seeing several of you through the years including J.C.

Two children come to mind that are no longer with us (that is two that I know of and they will be missed today) and that is Judy Reynolds and Merle Jean Leonard.

I still have in my possession some little momentous that the class gave me since I have that huge sentimental streak

Again my regrets, It would be so nice to visit with each of (you) . With luck, we will have that opportunity in the near future and I emphasize that word, "near" !!!!

With love to you all, Nadine Harbert
