School Story

Coach Warner was the Dean and a friend of my father. Coach Warner was amazed that I attended Landon. He told my dad that I spent more time in San Marco than I did in class. High school was wonderful even if I did show up a week late each year at the beginning of the year. That's why my locker was always on the third floor behind the auditorium.

Mrs. Stephens and Ms. von Dohlen told my father that I was educationally challenged but they were determined that I graduate. I miss them both - they made me laugh.

Special thanks to Mrs. Yvonne Moore who let me take her typing classes (because I was in love with someone who I just had to be with) and thus gave me a skill in the Army to stay out of the Vietnamese jungle.

See the 6th grade photograph under my Profile - Billy is in the front of the room on the right hand side of the teacher.

I was out walking around at the Cemetery today.

Riverside Memorial is off of Normandy Boulevard and I-295.  It is an hour away from my home even when using the expressway.  Nowhere near Mandarin.

I was checking out the family plot in the old Jewish Section which has grave stones dating back to 1880.  It is filled with former progressives, socialists, Bolsheviks, communists, atheists, veterans, never marrieds, and people generally not associated with a particular synagogue or house of worship.

When my son married and moved away, my wife and I decided to buy two spaces in the family plot where my mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, aunts and uncles are buried all together.  My grandfather was first to go.  He left Poland before World War II to avoid being conscripted into the Army.

Here he is now sleeping with his fraternal brothers from the Workmen’s Circle.

The family grave stones are lined standing straight and tall.

I noticed new turf had been laid not more than fifteen feet from where my plot will be.

It was Billy Silverman.

All by himself.

Perhaps there are some of his family members who will be joining him in the future.  I hope so.

My wife is there now.  Nearby and close.

Billy came to her for adoption advice.  He wanted to adopt a child from Guatemala.  She knew how to do it before it was legal.  She would oversee the home study process. 

Billy became a wonderful father and grandfather.

I bet he found her a ruffled dress and they are dancing the full length of heaven.  The dance lessons are going to take me a little longer.

Happy Birthday Georgia. I drove by your old house the other day and it is still standing.
I hope you had a good one!

I am surprised how many people that were in my Spring Park classes graduated from Landon with me.
