Special Thanks


To Karen, my best friend (from Lenny)

A very special thanks to my loving wife for all that she has done for me. She is always there for me when I need her support and help. She always has a great smile, I can always hear the smile in her voice.

When things went wrong with my surgery she was always there for me. She stood for hours stretching and holding my fingers straight so that they would not twist and curl. When I need some help setting up my table saw for tilted operation, it is no problem for her to come down and read the degree indicator.

I am so lucky to have her, not only as my friend but also my wife. Karen, I shall love you always.

To Nancy DeFont Arnold (from Lenny)

I also have a very special thanks to Nancy DeFont Arnold. Because of our re-acquaintance at our class reunion, I was able to get back in touch with Mike. Nancy has also had a large part in convincing me to create this web site. She believes that my stories will help others as they did for her. Between her and Mike, I could not refuse.

I have very fond memories of Nancy. We only became friends during the last few weeks of school. I was very lucky to have been paired up with her for all of the graduation events. We laughed a lot and talked about the famous "Y" dances. She also had to tolerate my bizarre sense of humor.

To Pastor Marianne Unger (from Lenny)

I must add this thanks to a wonderful friend, whom I once had the honor and privilege of calling her my Pastor.

Pastor Marianne has been a very motivating force in convincing me to share my stories. The story "Be careful for what you wish " in her opinion is a wonderful testimonial to the Glory of God. On July 1, 2001 she encouraged me to tell this story in place of one of her wonderful sermons. She was absolutely right, the members of the congregation were all very touched. Wherever our journeys in life take us, you will always be with me.

To Mike Fisher (from Lenny)

I have a very special thanks to my friend and Web Designer, Mike Fisher. During high school days Mike and I were very good friends. We must have played hundreds of games of chess.

I have fond memories of going down to the LAR, an ice cream and sandwich shop. We use to carry in the chess game listen to the jukebox, have a milkshake and play a game or two of chess. What a memory! With that jukebox you could listen to ten songs for fifty cents.

About thirty years ago Mike and I lost contact. Recently I went to my 35th class reunion and became reacquainted with some old classmates. One classmate has a friend who kept in contact with Mike. I was provided with his email address and an old wonderful friendship was re-established.

This web site was Mike's brainstorm. I am truly glad that he convinced me into establishing it. Mike did all of the technical stuff to make it happen.

Thanks Mike.

To Bonnie Zimmerman (From Mike)

(This is a note from Mike Fisher, the "novice" webmaster of this site.) I felt that I should mention that the anonymous person Lenny referred to above, who re-introduced Lenny and me, is Bonnie Zimmerman, my great friend and classmate from Pottsville Area High School class of 1966. She was the main catalyst that brought together the elements that cooked up the wonderful chemistry that made this all happen. As Bonnie told me recently, "The Lord works in mysterious ways."
