Whew! Where do I begin? I'll keep it short...
Married Brad Buschow in 1968. We had three children. We divorced in 1979. Raised my children as a single mom and loved it! Scout leader, soccer mom--the whole route. Nothing was (and is) more important to me than my kids! Needless to say the devastation of losing my son, Dave, at the age of 29 brought me to my knees, but because I knew we had to "right a wrong," I didn't have time to feel sorry for myself; I had to push forward. Rob and I fought the legal battles, but more importantly, we fought for changes in the school to prevent future needless deaths.

Since Dave's death, I have been traveling to places he had wanted to visit and experiencing things he enjoyed to do. Before he died, he chastised me for not living life so I'll live life until these old bones object. And, I'm sure he'll be along for the ride!

School Story:

Biggest regret: I worked part-time after school so I missed out on a lot of the socializing. I should have spent more time just being a teen-ager.

What I hated: Gym uniforms (ugh) and running track in the winter. Reading the Times every day.

Best Memory: Taking time off from work to be in the Jr/Sr Play, Dobie Gillis. Does anyone even remember it? Anyway, it was a lot of fun.

Teachers: Any class with Mrs. Brett. She was a great teacher and cool person. Mrs. Stieffel's impromptu skits in Speech & Drama were always funny. Mr. Capasso's offbeat sense of humor.

Remember, Please Stand, Face the Flag, and Repeat After Me? That was me. Anything to go to class late or leave early.

There are some people from high school with whom you may not have shared many personal experiences, but when you hear their name, your recollection is one of feelings.  When I read that Greg had passed, my immediate reaction was, "He was such a great guy; so down to earth and kind."  We were in a couple of classes together and shared a few conversations and laughs, but that was it.  From those exchanges, he left such a positive memory.  What more can you ask that just the sound of someone's name evokes such a positive feeling.  Rest in peace, Greg.

I remember Louie very well.  He could always make you laugh; sometimes at the teacher's expense. He was my first "date" in 6th grade; a western movie at Pascack Theatre.  I remember he asked if he could kiss me and I said, "Let's not and say we did!"  He was quick on the uptake and said, "Let's and say we didn't."  It was such a strange coincidence that his father grew up just down the street from my mother in Paterson and they knew each other very well.  Life sure has such funny twists and turns.  He was always such a nice, funny guy.
