"I hope "the committee" has the time to read this...I just want to thank all of you for all the time and effort you put in to each of the reunions...this most recent one seemed especially special--it confirmed what I've always thought--that I was fortunate enough to have gone to high school with just about the finest bunch of people on this planet. Thanks again."
