Hello Gerry. I appreciated hearing from you on my birthday and hope you are well. I just finished reading the "In Memoriam" page for our classmates, and it was very sobering to see how many of them have passed away. I thank God for helping me retain my health, and steering me clear of covid-19. What are some of the activities you are pursuing these days in retirement? Having even a small orchard and nursery keeps me plenty busy. We had a very windy spring here, and intense heat and high-level smoke for most of this month, but the heat has now abated somewhat, with daytime highs "only" about 89-93F. Fruit is ripening early because of the heat! All my best, Bob Purvis.

Hello Paul! I was surprised but pleased to find you wishing me a Happy Birthday and yes, I am well and safe. We live five miles by road outside of Homedale, ID and are 42 miles due west of Boise. I own and operate a small (1.13 acres) commercial orchard and nursery. Do you ever garden or work with trees or shrubs? Thanking you for your thoughtfulness and hoping that you too are well, your classmate Bob Purvis.
Bob, Hope your birthday is fun and that you are well. Have a great upcoming year.
Happy Birthday Bob!

Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas. I remember with joy our meeting at the Denver airport some years ago. We had a good year with the orchard and nursery here and have not been affected by covid-19 ourselves. I hope you are staying well. Are you still pursuing your career or have you retired?--Bob Purvis

Just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. I see that you served in the USMC. Where did you train, and where did you serve? At the University of Delaware, Army ROTC was compulsory for all male freshmen and sophomores. I did not take the Advanced course there, but I was admitted to Advanced Army ROTC at the University of Virginia and was commissioned thru that program in June 1971 as a Signal Corps officer. I spent much of my three years of active duty at Fort Greely, Alaska as a test officer. Thanking you for having served, your classmate Bob Purvis.
I first met Tom McDaid in eighth grade at Haverford Junior High School. We ate lunch together with two other boys regularly in the cafeteria that year. What I remember about Tom is his going out for the wrestling team although he did not have a lot of natural athletic ability. Tom persevered and eventually earned a letter sweater. His example was an encouragement to me as a member of the HHS cross-country team to persevere and ultimately earn a varsity letter although I had almost no natural athletic ability
