Favorite memory of MHS:
Latin Guild, Miss Agnes Gaughan
Momento to remind you of 1962:
Since I actually graduated from HS in Raleigh, NC, I cherish my Chemic yearbook.
Biggest lesson learned:
After I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and dealing with all that brought, I now know every day is a gift and people are precious. I don't worry about what might happen later and I don't spend a lot of time regretting the past.
Closest friends in 1962:
Becky Bradley, Leslie Collinson, Paul Key, Kathy Shaw, Susan Yates, I correspond with Becky, Kathy and Susan.
