Message: Dear John,
You have really out done yourself. I am listening to Let's Dance by Chris Montez or Zeke as we knew him in high school. Sunday I was showing my aunt the web page and accidently clicked on the Juke- box. I couldn't hear the music as she didn't have speakers on her computer. This is the first time I have been able to hear the songs on the Juke-box. This site is "so cool". Keep up the good work You have done a fantastic job. Tell me something, is this your life's work?
Note: Sally, Thanks for the praise on the website and sometimes I do feel like this IS my lifes work. :o) Thanks again

Class: 60
Message: Hi John,
I check out this site as much as I can. Love it, This makes my day. I received a message from the past that brought back many memories, back to the seventh and eight grades. The things we forget as we age. Many memories came back like missing the seasons back east, however, California became my home, as I got older and married, then moved to Oklahoma. Boy! I really don't miss the seasons anymore. Guess I have to stay in Laughlin where it gets very warm, like 120 degrees on good days my arthritic limbs can't take the cold. This is a great site, and I will check back with you and the alumnus. Would like to know where Kathy Kelly or Pat Gregory Matthews are. I have not found my El Molino yet. Must have it packed up still. Sure hope I did not give it away.
Always Sally

It is so much fun reading your Hawthorne page.In our house we have both schools represented. My wife Linda (Dawson-'69)can relate more to the Hawthorne High part of this web site, I on the other hand enjoy seeing my old school Leuzinger mentioned from time to time. I know that this web page is supposed to be for Hawthorne folks, but whether you went to HHS, LHS or any of the other schools in the local area, most of the memories are much the same. I thank you for allowing us LHS'ers to participate. For those of us that went to LHS there is a high school registration page for LHS at . It's just a registry and not as much fun as this page. Thanks again for this chance to re-live memories that never go away.

I really think I see Miss Cone in the first batch of Reunion photos, nine rows down and 5 across. Can anybody verify?? She was an HHS grad and came back to HHS to teach English. She probably came to the Reunion as a "student" rather than as a "teacher"! When I had her as an English teacher in the sixties I think she said she was 28. She was a tremendous teacher (though I think she liked my younger brother Kevin "best.") I think she married Mr. Lyle in the late 1960's or early 1970's. I REALLY think "it's her." If it is, she gives me great hope in the aging process...
