    Jill, would you have any objection to receiving a comment from an old high school classmate (and fellow track and fielder) who sat next to you in Mr. Walsh’s English Lit class senior year?

      I welcome any comments and an old high school friend is especially of interest! Comment away!

        For what it’s worth, your kindness as a teenager was a tremendous comfort during what was a nightmarishly unhappy time in my life. You were always patient and encouraging when I got morose, which was pretty much always. No matter how boring and self-absorbed I could be, you were willing to lend an ear, which was a truly generous gift to someone in despair, a gift that was appreciated more than you knew. I remain tremendously grateful for having known you, brief though it may have been, so please accept this offer of thanks, long overdue but heartfelt all the same.

    Wow! So is that not a gift in itself? A really cool gift from you to let me know that I made a difference in your life just by being a friend? I saw a bright, funny young man who had potential to be a kind, solid contributor to the world – your friendship was important to me at the time as well. I was a newcomer and you were welcoming. Sounds like we both gained. I hope that you have done well.
