    What a great picture. Newell , Sam and Mizelle were one grade ahead of me, however Martin, Mike
    , Norman and I were in the same class attending Palm Beach Public in Palm Beach. Martin, Mike and I graduated from 9th grade in 1936 and were all in the class of 39. Of t hat group I think Sam and I are the only ones alive. Newell was lost in WW2, Martin and Mike died after the war .Newell and I double dated our high school sweeties and married them during WW2 . Great memories. Thank you.
