There are places I remember,

All my life, though some have changed,

Some forever, not for better,

Some have gone and some remain,

All these places had their moments,

With lovers and friends I still can recall.

Some are dead and some are living...

In my life, I've loved them all.

..."In My Life" written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Thanks to Betty Hunt Foster for sending this song.

Help Us Remember


Our mascot, the LINKS, exemplifies perfectly the idea of connection, reliance, trust and conviction.  As time passes, these connections are strengthened by recalling memories, in conversations and website messages and in sharing of photos. 

In life and death, we honor our classmates on our LHS Class of 1961 website.  The “In Memory” section is dedicated to our deceased classmates.  Here, we celebrate and pay tribute to their lives.

Your input, support and comments are appreciated.  Please click on “Contact Us” to reach Cathy Stump Rauch or Donna Filbert Ewoldt.


Thank you for sharing your personal stories about our deceased classmates on our IN MEMORY page so that a rose appears by their classmate profile names. Your comments brighten the memories of those who have gone before us and help us to better connect with each other. We will always remember these special friends.
