Maria, so sorry for your loss.  One of my favorite quotes:  " To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."  May your husband rest in peace.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Loss of a loved one is always hard. Hopefully, knowing that so many friends support you will lessen your grief and let you know we share your sorrow.

Many of our classmates are not on Facebook and therefore may not know that Jim Casey lost his friend and companion, Bostko Casey and we wish to express our condolences and sympathy.  When I've lost animal companions, I think of the words from the poem, "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner,"  We learned it in High School (which is what we all have in common. )  "He prayeth best, who loveth best, all things both great and small, for the Dear Lord who madeth us, he madeth us one and all.  "  Very sorry for your loss, Jim Casey and we appreciate all you do for our class being connected.

James Casey

Thanks to Maria and so many other classmates and friends that have been so very kind and thoughtful following the loss of my beloved sidekick, soulmate, and companion, Bostko Casey, my 13 year old Boston Terrier. He was a very special pup, amazingly intelligent and devout to me and my Family. Yor messages, prayers and thoughts were very comforting. Yet one more reason why this web site is such a wonderful tool in keeping us together and being there when one of us is hurting, ill, or oterwisw in need of friendship and support. God Bless the Class of 1965. Love you all!  Jim

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of John.  I remember him from Roosevelt.  Also the passing of Miss Castaldo.  I had her for English.  She was not only beautiful, but a great teacher.

So sorry that I couldn't make the memorial service for Ms Castaldo-LaFlamme.  She has been and continues to be in my thoughts and prayers.  God Bless.

She was a wonderful teacher and I am so sorry to have not been able to go as I was attending my husband's memorial of 46 years.  He fought hard but the lung cancer finally beat him.  He will be interred at Bourne as he was a Nam Vet.

  • New Bedford is the home of the New Bedford Whaling Museum, the country's largest museum on the subject of whaling and the history of interaction between humans and whales.
  • In 1838, Frederick Douglass, the runaway slave who became a famous abolitionist, settled in New Bedford.
