I am still close to my TJ graduated classmates in Richmond which get together about once every couple of months for lunches. This core group have remained together after all these years telling the same stories over and over each time we meet.

After TJ I Graduated from Virginia Tech in 1966 with a BA Degree in Political Science. I joined Pfizer Inc. after graduation and worked for them for over 40 years retiring in 2007. I was then up until March of 2013 a Pfizer Ambassador, one of 12 individuals who worked Medical Conference around the globe. I also am very active as an American Heart Association Board Member and have an Adjunct Faculty Appointment at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Anne: We are indeed living in Nags Head however, we are in the process of building a new home not 100 yards from our old one in Manakin-Sabot. We are doing some traveling until the end of the year with a trip taking us to Charlotte, Atlanta, Hilton Head, Coco Beach and then to Singer Island in Palm Beach. Trust that you will have a Happy Thanksgiving. We think of you often. Stay in touch with us.

Smiley

It is with great sadness that I received the news about "Smiley". Think about how one gets the knickname SMILEY.We had just had lunch together at Padow's. Smiley  was upbeat as he always was when we all gathered. That day, Russell, Billy Stanley, Sidney and me shared the fellowship that we always did. Missing that day was George Shear who almost always came with Smiley.

We are greatfull for the friendships that we have and will miss Smiley because of who is was in our lives.

Classmates: I was and you were all very fortuate to have Billy Collins as a classmate and friend. It is certainly a sad time for us all. In reflection Billy was a very strong individual. I spoke with Billy twice in the last month and those conversations will stay with me in memory of such a wonderful friend. May G-D bless Billy's soul and shephard him in eternity.

With sincerely

 

Melvin
