Dave and I were not close at OHS.  We just travelled in different orbits.  I would like to have been in his orbit but it was not to be.  I do remember being a batter when Dave was on the pitching mound.  I can still feel that brushback fastball as it whizzed by my face.  I couldn't see the ball but I felt it.  I think a direct hit would have cured me from my paasion for baseball once and for all.  Nevertheless I got into school politics and that was the end of my baseball story.  Best wishes to Dav's family and many friends.  Dave, Say hello to Mike Stoddard when you get to the other side.  Rich Kendell

It is the saddest thing to see our beloved classmates go...I suppose we won't be far behind and will look forward to that great OHS Reunion in the Sky. It is interesting to me that Mike and Dave passed close to one another. I usually don't think about one without thinking about the other. In my mind's eye, I usually see them walking together. These two men were stars in their own right, radiant  and life enhancing. It seems each and every one of my classmates has something unique and endearing that has contributed wonderfully to my life. I feel our connection after all these years as we have survived good and bad. We truly are a great class of "mates." Thanks for all who make this site possible and who have kept us connected. I so enjoy reading the comments and am grateful we have this for keepikng in touch. May all be blessed. Sending love to all of you!  Cathie
