David was such a unique and enjoyable presence. We too a fencing class together at the JCC. Every female in the program fell in love with him! He lived life on his own terms and I'm glad I had the pleasure of knowing him.

I always enjoyed Adda's spontaneous humor. I remember her as being a fun and joyful person, even when she was being sardonic. I was looking forward to seeing her for lunch in January.

Even as a teenager, Carl had the qualities that we all strive for and want to imbue in our own children: humility, kindness, and gratitude. Whenever he attended our reunions, we were truly glad to see him and to be in his company. I am saddened to learn that another good classmate is no more.

Grateful for all the Mumford Girls' Monday Night Dinners to add to our memories of a beloved classmate, especially the night we brought dinner to Geri's when she was not strong enough to attend.
