Fifty Years Ago
It's been a long time since we've visited with our oldest friends
And how the memories start to flow...
You probably notice the old Osage Show, well they finally closed it down,
But you could find us there most weekend nights, fifty years ago.
We can still hear the school bells and the kids in the hall
Look around tonight we see "us" as we were back then.
Even the smells of our school can be recalled...
But we can only visit for a precious little while, because life goes on...
and again, reality calls.
And then let's not forget our friends who have already gone and can't be here,
And how their lives touched ours and how they are woven into the fabric of our great class.
But now, because of our collective memory of them all,
They'll always be here with us...
Because in our hearts they will forever last.
I was able to see the SMU Campus for the first time when I visited the Bush Library. Now I see why so many Kirkwoodians go there for college...and in today's world, there is a lot of growth and new construction along with refurbishing of the older buildings.

While Mrs. Denigan was not my French teacher, I know for many of you she was a well-loved teacher. May she rest in peace and love. Obituary courtesy St. Louis Post Dispatch.
