Class Reunion - Post Script

PS:  This past week I have received several beautiful comments from classmates. Here are  several:

"The first time I saw you dressed as a lady, Initially if felt confused, CONFUSED when our chairman announced your male name and a pretty lady walked up to the podium!   Then I felt SURPRISED and  wanted to learn more.

Later, when we talked I felt ADMIRATION for your courage to be yourself.   "It is never too late to be what you might have been," is George Eliot's splendid quote that starts your blog. I agree with her!

No person has gone   unchanged during this half-century.  On the positive side, many now do not judge a person's value by race, age,  gender, sexual orientation, or  handicap (including mental illness).  On the negative side, a few still reject anyone who "marches to the beat of a different drummer."  God simply wants  us to accept each other."


"Everyone had a moment of surprise, but your confidence and laughter overtook the room. Looking at the photos that our classmates have posted from the weekend, you had a great time, girlfriend!"

"It was a fun weekend full of laughs and we made new memories while walking down memory lane. I must say, you were the belle of the ball, good thing we wear the same size shoe!"


I graduated from our same high school in 1971. You likely know my sister that graduate the year after you.  A good friend, also an local graduate, sent me a link to your blog.  I just wanted to say how much I admire your courage and self respect. Thank you.

My personal note: I want to thank you all for such beautiful comments. You made it easy and fun.
