Lived in Jerusalem for several years. I helped to open the first group home in Israel, for the mentally ill. Moved to California, came out as a lesbian.
Would love to be in contact with old friends. Contact me! I'll respond!

School Story

Hi All
A very sad memory. Chris Carvel approached me at lunch time. "The President has just been shot." I didn't believe her. I asked the teacher on lunch duty, "Is it true?" I just couldn't say the words. There were tears streaming down his face. He didn't respond. He couldn't say the words either.

Hey Ellen Happy Birthday. How have you been? I just rescued this little doggy. She's half Poodle, and I'm not sure what else...Anyway, she's very sweet. Her name is Brownie.

Hi Benny! Such a long time! What have you done with your life? I had a 30 year career as a Mental Health Specialist. I moved to Jerusalem, and helped to open the first group home in Israel, for the mentally ill. I've had a very exciting life!!! Rise Narens

Hi Fellow Classmates

     Kind of brings it home, when you know and remember the classmate who has just left us.  "Candy" and I were friends, back at Skiles Jr Hi. back in 1958 - 9.  I remember how much I enjoyed her sense of humor, matching my own!  I also enjoyed her many animals in her home.  I wasn't aloud any pets, even a goldfish!  So I truely enjoyed my visits with her and her many animal friends.  Wish I hadn't lost touch with her.

Charlene was working at the Evanston Post Office.  It was many years after H S.  I was picking up a letter for a friend, but didn't have any I D for her.  I figured it would take less time if I just said I was the other person.  So I said, "Hi, I'm Susan Doe, and I'm here to pick up my letter.  (I didn't think she would remember me)  Well, Charlene said, "You're not Susan Doe.  You're Rise Narens!  Haven't seen you since High School.  How have you been?"   wink     Rise Narens
