Hi Roxanne,

I put a link to your Melvindale High site from my home page. The URL is in the signature block at the bottom of this message. It's a great idea to have that kind of information available to help locate alumni. I also had several siblings that graduated from MHS. My sisters Joanne '65, Judy '68, and Susan '76. I don't think any of them have e-mail or web sites.

I have also been trying to locate another friend of mine who attended MHS. His name is Vaughn Wahl, he attended the class of '65, but I don't think he graduated. He went into the navy and after his discharge he married a girl from Melvindate and lived there for a while. I believe they moved to Alabama in the mid seventies, and I haved seen or heard from him since. If you run into him, his brothers Duane and Keith, or his sister lorie, I would like to get in contact with any of them.

I noticed that you have an 'In Memoriam' section. A fellow graduate and good friend of mine, Thomas Richard Brand '63 was killed in Vietnam in August 1965. There is a park in Allen Park that was named after him since he was the first Allen Park resident that died in that war.

I am working for the University of Michigan Medical Center as a Senior Programmer Analyst. I have been doing computer work since the late sixties when I had most of my BS degree completed. I was married for a short time (1972 to 1975), and after the divorce I moved to the Ann Arbor area where I still reside.

Thanks for the contact, I will be visiting your MHS site frequently.

Don Ritter MHS '63
