  1. I am flabbergasted that it has been fifty years since our days at Hellgate and Sentinel – probably more so that I’ve made it this far.

    I remember some things fondly, and some not so much. I remember that horrible day in November 1963. I was leaning up against the window outside the gym when the rumor raced around the school that our President had been assassinated. I remember 6th Period Geometry when Mr. McElwain asked us to bow our heads while he said a short prayer for the President and Mr. Kennedy. (Try doing that today!)

    I remember all my crushes or at least their faces if not all their names. Oh, c’mon! We all had a crush on this girl or that guy at some point. After all, we were teenagers and a crush was the most beautiful and painful experience most of us would have for years to come. Back then, we all thought we were immortal. Death happened to others – surely not us! We all planned our long, happy lives.

    Sadly, that wasn’t what God had planned for some of us, and that brings me to the point of all this. There are some who will not be in attendance in September, except in our memory. There were more – many, many more in the years since, but these were our classmates. Remember them. Honor them.

    Lionel CRASE, Hellgate class of 1966, United States Marine Corps, killed in Vietnam April 7th, 1968.

    Michael HAVRANEK, Loyola class of 1966, United States Marine Corps, killed in Vietnam June 11th, 1967.

    Steven SLUSHER, Sentinel class of 1966, United States Army, killed in Vietnam January 8th, 1969.

    Gary THATCHER, Sentinel class of 1966, United States Army, killed in Vietnam February 6th, 1970.

    Good luck and best wishes.
