And we are all excited, 'cuz
we've been reunited...
yeah, yeah, yeah...
Sunday after reunion thoughts from Bennie Swanson:
I woke up this morning with my heart just full of joy after spending time with my classmates from South Class of '64. The camaraderie, respect, and love we share just fills my heart, and I am so proud to have these lifelong friends. We share a history and an undconditional love that is borne from sharing our lives when we were young and just knowing that no matter what, we are there for each other. We may not spend a lot of time together nowadays, but I find it very precious to know that we have known each other through good times and bad and still remember the good stuff. There is just something special about the connection we share. I think our class is very unique in continuing to treasure these times together, and I am very grateful to be part of such an amazing group of people!
