Message: Noreen, YES, I DO remember the nail polish for nylon holes...then it would stick to your leg...oh, the tortures we endured back in the day for beauty! And before panty hose, we had to wear girdles to clip our nylons to..of course now they have "spanks" which seems suspiciously like girdles-What goes around, comes around..so thankful to you for keeping all John's buddies up on his progress-we are all thinking of him and praying as well! He's too onery to stay down for long! And to Robert Fitzgerald..is Mike Burris any relation to Libby and Ray Burris? or Maynard Burris? Ray Burris was my Dad's best friend..they worked their whole lives at Standard Oil Company-they had a son named Robert Burris that would've been about class of '59 as well..just curious..

Message: Dear fellow Cougars - I don't know if I'd ever expressed to Terri, how much I personally cared for him as my friend while he was here. What a sweet, happy, gentle and caring soul he was, and what a Babe! Let's just plain say it...he was so handsome too. I remember always hearing him say, "hey babe, what's happening", or "whats's shakin' babe", as he was loving and kind to all. I am deeply saddened by the news of his death last weekend! When my Aunt-Sherrie (Reynolds) Hawthorne notified me that she had heard about Terri, I burst into tears and my heart just broke. I have sent prayers to my little sister - Sheila DeLorenzo (in heaven since August 1999) to come and take Terri's hand to guide him home. I will forever keep him in my heart and prayers! To Ter's family, my love and deepest condolences are sent to you in this tragic time as well. I am here for you if you need to talk. I know first-hand what it's like to lose a loved-one to violence. I hope to see you all this Sunday- June 10th, 2012 (around noon) at Pat's II for his Memorial Services. With Much Love, Cindy

Message: Wish we could have had a way to connect with all the HHS'ers at the Hollywood Bowl Saturday night at the Beach Boys concert! Fantastic is a weak description of how much fun and enjoyment we had that evening. I was there with my friend Ray McMinn, and my brother Newell and his friend Norma. It was a sad, nostalgic memory when Dennis and Carl's pictures and music were featured. Just a reminder to make the most of each day. From what I am reading on "Feedback" they had a performance on Friday night too. I was tired all day Sunday, and they performed again that night in Irvine. I would have gone to that concert too if I had had the energy! We all loved it!

Message: Went to the Beach Boys Concert Friday night. Hard to bend my head around how old they look. Still imagine myself 17. The Concert was wonderful, beach balls flying through the air, almost a full moon raising over the Greek Theater. The sun "setting" on stage. The boys really belted it out for 3 hours. A total sell out of 8500 people. Great time had by all, even my 2 daughters 49 and 47 who went with us.

Message: Well John, I don't think enough positive things can be said about last night's Beach Boy concert in Irvine. It was phenomenal beyond words. The music and voices were as beautiful as the day they started. Couldn't believe it. Best of all they looked like they were having the time of their lives. And if anyone doubts the influence of David Mark's surf guitar, well, he proved what a huge role he had back then and regained now. Well deserved! A big thanks to Glenn Crist and you John for great rides and fun. Also a big thank you to Rich and Mary for arranging dinner and doing their best to get us VIP treatment, it was an amazing day and night. And as I am trying to function on about 3 hours of sleep, the experience was worth every lost minute of sleep. What a show!

Message: I just saw the Beach Boys 50th Reunion Tour at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. An absolutely wonderful show with memories and some great music. They sounded great and also had shout outs to Hawthorne High several times, as well as some pictures of the school and some people from that era. The band included David Marks, and for those of us who remember David from Junior High no less, it was great to see him back with the band and playing lead guitar on several songs. If you have a chance to catch the show, it will bring back some serious memories from Drop-In Dances to cruising "The Boulevard." If you miss this week in Orange County they will be in Tahoe in July.

Message: I just got back from Florida yesterday and saw my son graduate with his Bachelor's in Orlando and I also saw my brother Ernie in Jacksonville. Ernie is doing much better - we almost lost him a couple of months ago - but he is now on the mend. His cancer is in remission - very good news. He is still feeling quite weak and tires easily, but he and his wife Brenda managed to drive down to attend my son's graduation and Ernie did all the driving. Of course, what would you expect from someone who loves cars and watches every second of the NASCAR races? Anyway, I just wanted to give this update on how he is doing and I thank you all for wishing him well. It means the world to him and to me. Hope everyone had a great time at the Beach Boys concert!
