Noel, Don, me and Howie

     Three of my dearest friends from the past all spending our last reunion together at Noel's house in Vermont.   Noel is at left, then me and to the right is my dear friend Howie, who has been my friend even since 1954. Don, standing in back ground has been my friend since 1957 or so.  That was a wonderful week end with my friends and their wives.  I don't think i will ever see Don again.
Both Howie and i have lost contact with him after he and his wife split up.   Don seems to  have just disappeared in his new life and new friends.   He used to tell me, "As i walk down the steps of the church at my last kid's wedding, i am going to just keep walking and never come back."   Looks like he was late, but finally did it.
