Janet (Whiting) Sennett, R. I. P.
This is something that I have never done before. This situation is different.
In June of 1958, I graduated from high school with this lady and her boyfriend/later husband for over 50 years, as part of a graduating class of 43 young people from Hanover High School, Hanover, MA. I have never seen either her or her husband since graduation, but her husband & I exchange emails off and on.
