This Feb. 03, 2005 letter; from Shirley Jones Craft ~ s-48 & her husband, Jerry w-47

Hi Ed:  I'm sorry that I goofed and deleted your "received e-mail" message. Anyway, Shirley and I sure want to thank you for keeping us in mind and for all the work you've gone to in establishing and maintaining this valuable and interesting web site.  Always fun to look at those pics of all of you/us all those decades ago.  Still trying to figure out where the time has gone.....


Interesting to read where all the people are now living; a little surprising to see that quite a few still live in or near Eagle Rock.....Last time we drove along Colorado Blvd (two or three years ago) it brought back memories.
I don't know if you remember, Ed, but I used to sell newspapers on the corner of Townsend and Colorado Blvd, right by Lund's barber shop, so my recollections of the boulevardóback in the early '40só may be better than
most.....It was good to see that still quite a few of the members of the Class of S '48 were there for the reunion.  Maybe we'll make the next.  By the way, were you aware that Chet Piolotto's mother and mine grew up across the street from each other in a small town named Perry in northeastern Oklahoma? ......

We keep in touch, on more or less a regular basis, with Gwen and Dick, as well as their daughters......Where are you living now, and besides maintaining the web site, what are you doing to stay out of trouble, and did any of your kids follow you into contracting?  If I recall correctly, they did, but I'm not certain...


For over 40 years I worked summers and Saturdays in the building materials trade and got to know quite a few builders....They always seemed like a good bunch of people, and if I hadn't gone into education, I think I would have liked putting together houses.  Well, that's about it for now.  Thanks again.  Jerry
and Shirley.

Hi Ed:  As usual it was a treat to check out your latest installment of the Class of S-48 on the Internet.  If you haven't already heard, Georgia McVicker
(Mrs. Harold CassóHarold was an architectural engineer and a graduate of ERHS S-46) died a couple of years ago.  Don't recall the exact time, but somewhere
around the first of 2003 rings a bell.  Both she and Harold, who moved to their retirement home in the San Bernardino Mountains around 1990, were some of
the best people on earth, and we always valued their friendship.  After Harold graduated from UCLA, they built a home in West Covina, and Harold commuted
each day to his office out on Wilshire Blvd.  The stress of those long hours on the roadway may have contributed to his early passing, about 10 years ago.
It was in their driveway off Addison Way that we parked out green Buick (for a fast get-away) following our wedding at Eagle Rock Presbyterian 50 years ago.
Gwen (Schenz) was Shirley's Matron of Honor, and Sterling Neblett was my Best Man.  Boy, how the time flies!!!!  Again Ed, thanks for your involvement in
keeping this wonderful web site going.  You're doing one heck of a job. Jerry and Shirley (Jones) Craft

Oh my, was I scared. I was terribly self conscious, and if it hadn't been for the fact Pat Donovan and Maxine were starting the same day, I would have chickened out. I came from Marshall where the student body was so haughty and cold.. I walked through those glorious arches and knew I was where I belonged. Everyone smiled and said hi......unbelievable think everyone knows by now my first class was chemistry. Mr. Hoyt seated me next to an adorable young man with a big grin and I thought,, "well he'll find a new partner" Not so tho, he stuck it out and we had a great time as lab partners. (Do you recognize Mr. Sylvis?)

Eagle Rock  hi was probable the very happiest time in my whole life. Such wonderful friends, fun events, dances, "Teen Troc", I don't know what was more fun, decorating or dancing. I fell in love for the first time, felt like a princess.

I just never wanted to go home, school was too much fun.

Remember Pops Willow Lake, Indian Springs Everywhere we went we ran into a schoolmate. Such a wonderful time.

I wish I could relive it all. It gave me memories, self confidence, the most wonderful friends I could wish for.

I now live 3 blocks from a high school and I hear the cheering, laughing, and the bands playing. I'm whisked back  to ER for a moment. Its great.

Best wishes and good health to all the Marquis. I miss you.

Sharon Hoyt James

Ed Sylvis Sharon came to my rescue in chemistry class. I had a blond foreign exchange student who didn't understand my suggestion to hold the pretty orange part of the heated glass tube with her bare fingers was a stupid joke.

Sharon easily aced the course and drug me along with her for an "A" grading - click on her picture and ask her about it!
