I’M GOING TO THE REUNION by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"


60th REUNION LONG BRANCH H.S. CLASS OF 1955 
I put off attending the Reunion because I had other things to do;
Now I’m saddened I didn’t go to see old friends I knew.
Looking at last year’s photos of those who chose to go,
Makes me long to be there with them at the Luncheon, Banquet, and Show.
Why wasn’t I there to share the memories of those times now past;
With my dear departed classmates at the Reunion that was their last.
I put off attending the Reunion because I had other things to do;
Now I’m happy I’m going to see dear friends both old and new.
I’m not going to miss this Reunion; that’s a promise I’ve got to keep;
So I can laugh and joke with folks like me before my Final Sleep.



NOTE: I’m in the top row, second from left.

I said good by to Eddie Kain with many tears in my eyes but happy that I got to give an old friend one last hug at last year's reunion.
There are no guard towers where Eddie is now but I know that he is on guard for all of us now.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the guys again this year.
