Comments:

I live in rural Royalston, Ma, in the northwest corner of Worcester County, a half-mile from the New Hampshire border. We have a 25 acre hobby farm with a knockout view of Mt. Monadnock, have a flock of 50 laying hens and 15 beehives. I sell eggs and honey, and do a big garden of sunflowers for the honeybees and a small veggie garden. How did a nice Wellesley girl like me end up on a farm?
I work part time as Organist at Fitzwilliam (NH) Community Church and Hancock (NH) Congregational Church. I have had to give up riding my awesome motorcycle due to a medical issue where my balance is affected. Of course some think I have been unbalanced for a long time!
Our kids and grandkids live in Westboro, Effingham, NH, Jaffrey NH, Waltham, MA and son Brian (US NAVY), 36, is stationed in at Lemoore Naval Air Station in central California, living in Hanford, CA with wife Dae. He did three tours in the Persian Gulf aboard the nuclear aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln. Kevin (34) served 10 years active duty as an MP in the Army with tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, twice in Korea, and is a member of the Massachusetts National Guard. A parent's nightmare each time, but both came home safe an sound physically and mentally from their military experiences. Kevin graduated in May 2019 from Framingham State University (my alma mater) and works as an Accountant for a large firm in Wilmington which has clients all over the world.
I have been married 38 years to Joseph Kroll Nunes -he retired several years ago as CEO of Southboro Medical Group. Good thing as I am his full time job (as it should be!) I am in close contact with three classmates, none of whom actually graduated with us, as they all ended up at private school - Nancy Cameron, Sukey Stone, and Faith Harvey. I also spend a lot of time with my Metco Sister, Nazaleem Cecily Smith, who lives in Boston. She is not on line at this time but she will be coming to the reunion with me. Brother Steve lives in Natick, and as he graduated with us too he will undoubtedly come to the reunion too.
Love spending time with my best 4 legged friend, Lightning Bolt Nunes

School Story:

Lasell College - AA Liberal Arts 1972
Framigham State College, BA Spanish, Education minor, 1975
Have spent my entire adult life doing music, serving as Music Director, Choir Director and Organist at several Unitarian Universalist churchs;accompanying numerous choral groups, school dance programs, Oktoberfest Oompah band, and performing in hundreds of concerts. I also enjoy playing piano, banjo, accordion and fiddle. The biggest thrill of my musical life was the purchase five years ago of the beautiful 1924 Steinway grand piano from the family of my piano teacher of 11 years - this is the very piano that I learned to play on back in the 50's and 60's. Forgot to mention that (I don't mean to brag) but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school!

My heartfelt condolences to Robin and Kathy

I cannot imagine anything more heartbreaking than losing a child.

Deb, you have not changed a bit! You were also a talented artist. Why am I not surprised that you had such fabulous musical experiences, sharing the Lord with your community? I sing with the Pilgrim Festival Chorus of Plymouth, MA, enjoyed performing Mozart REQUIEM with full orchestra in spring, 2019, at the Scituate Performance Center and at St Bonaventure mega-church in Plymouth, MA (where I sing in church choir, also). Our friend Debbie Fulham is still in Carlisle, PA. After my 2 children were grown and gone, I left Hershey, PA, to return to MA, Murray kin, and ailing parents in 2010. I love being near Sagamore Beach at the end of my development. I biked to Scusset Beach, the Sagamore Bridge, and the Cape Cod Canal. The Spillmans live on the Cape. Be well! Yours, Kathy Murray (Leisure).

Deborah Wells Nunes has a birthday today. New comment added.
