After graduating from NHS, I received my B.A. in Economics from Albion College. Spent 31 years working at the family business ( wholesale distributor of housewares ) and sold the firm in 2005. Have worked at two start-ups both with somewhat mixed results!
Since the premature death of my fiancée, Wendy, from cancer ( B cell lymphoma ) in December of 2021, I have been planning the next stage of my life. Wendy's daughter and son-in-law will be moving into the house here in Boxford and I'm headed to Williamsburg, Virginia to be with with some longtime friends. I hate leaving New England, but, I really can't stay here in Boxford.
But, I'll always be a Boston fan and will never forget my roots !!!

Joel did you get a message from me about walking to school together and your antique metal disc player? Please let me know and my sympathy for your loss. I would like to stay in touch we used to be close I still copy your Dad’s way of making eggs.

Hey Joel, I just now saw your post about Wendy’s passing. You had a rough few years and I’m sorry for your loss. As you heal, I’m sure the better times you had together will be the memories you can hold on to. Don’t forget to take time for yourself to heal, grieving is hard and takes time. Be good to yourself. Hope to see you at next reunion.

Despite all of everyone's thoughts and prayers, my forever fiancee, Wendy Monroe passed away Dec. 14 from B-cell lymphoma. Wendy fought her cancer for almost two years and her doctors from MGH, Dana Farber and Beth Israel Deaconess did everything possible to help her overcome her disease. It's a sad and premature end to our fourteen year plus relationship, but Wendy will always be in my heart. Thank you to all of you for your friendship and kind words. It's going to be a long, hard, cold Winter.

I just wanted to thank all of you who attended the reunion and especially for your kind words about Wendy's lymphoma. Unfortunately, today's PET scan was more bad news and her future is not looking good. The only positive news I have is that I had a Covid19 test this week ( post reunion ) and it is negative, so I'm thinking those of us who attended were must have been Covid19 free. Thank goodness for small favors, huh?? Speaking of favors...thank goodness no fights in the parking lot or at the beloved "Pines". :)

Very sorry to hear of Glenna's passing. She was sweet, kind, and always had a smile on her face. The World is a poorer place with her gone. My condolences to Glenna's entire family.

So sorry to hear about Ralph....we were in a fraternal organization during high school and as I remember his nickname was "Flea". Have no idea how or why he got that nickname, although he was ( like me ! ) on the smaller side physically. But he always had a smile on his face !

While I never had Mr. Richardson as a teacher, I do remember him for the carnation he wore every day. And in addition, as I recall, he was always very well dressed.
