We were always together in high school.

Sharon, Dotty, Barbara, Mary, Joyce and Betty.

So many memories.
Football games, where we were either cheerleaders or on the cheer club..
Dances after the games...
Walking to the Plaza to hang out in front of Liggetts.

I will miss you Betty.
I am glad we were all able to get together at Barbara’s
2 years ago.
It was like time had not passed We were just so happy to be together again.

Miss you.

I first met Betty when she moved to Dedham and arrived at our 4th grade classroom. I remember thinking how pretty she was. We were girlfriend and boyfriend in the 7th grade and after Saturday night dancing class would go to one of the four couples houses for snacks and dancing to Elvis and others. During High School we were Class Officers, me as Vice President and President and Betty as Class Secretary. I remember the two of us getting together and driving around to various places to find an after Prom Dinner place. I last saw her at our 50th reunion and she looked so much the girl I knew in High School. We talked, She will be missed. RIP Betty.
