I am shocked to find you listed here. I did not know of your passing. I remember our days in History Class together. I remember all the good times we shared. I was just poking around here as I remember Sue Pokriots Bernstein died this month (January 20th) a few years back.
Say hey to our buddies that have passed from the Class of 1970. Go Warriors!
Aloha Mike, I still miss you, to this day! So glad you came to Hawaii to see me before I could see you no more! Mike was my closest friend in high school. Always a kind word for everyone and everything! Our years on the Westmont Swim Team will never be forgotten on me! Aloha and mahalo Mike for your true friendship!!

Hey my friend, I asked about you at the last reunion. Sue Pokriots Bernstein and I were on the reunion committee together three years running and we thought you were gone. We were not sure, but rumors of your passing were circulating. May you rest in peace.
From Teri Spence on June 24th, 2010
I just opened the reunion website and went to the memorial page, and I got the shock of my life! I had just talked to Sue a couple of months before and she didn't say anything to me about her health. I told her about my breast cancer,and double mastectomy,and she said nothing about hers at all. Well my friend rest in peace, and just know that I'm doing great!

A good and kind friend, and classmate. Fond memories of our Poly-Sci class at West Valley Comm Coll... Mike had notes on a recorder... I took notes by shorthand... we consolidated efforts at my parent's kitchen table while studying for exams. Hard to believe we lost him so early.

It is with great sadness that I have learned of Paula Clements-Kenyon’s passing. You see Paula and I were boyfriend and girlfriend for over a year in high school. I did not attend Westmont but Cupertino High. I first met Paula through my cousin who attended Westmont as he was dating her sister Claudia. Paula was my prom date and we shared many adventures together. We were both in band and we enjoyed sports together. She had an infectious smile and laugh and such a wonderful outgoing personality. Over the years I would often remember her and my thoughts were always hoping she was happy and loved by those all around her. My heart and prayers go out to her family and friends through this difficult time. One last thing, I am a member of the Gideon’s society and will be donating 5 bibles in the name of Paula Clements-Kenyon to be distributed somewhere in the world. Rest in peace dear Paula.
Mark so Sue Pokriots Bernstein has joined you in that last party in the sky. She shared the news of your death at the time. Sorry you passed on so early. I hope we can share a cocktail or two like old times. Perhaps that is not an option in heaven, but I would like to think we can do whatever we would like all in good fun. I am sure you are in a better place with much happiness. Rest in peace my buddy.
What a shock. Jim was a neighbor, lived just around the corner. He was always one of the nicest classmates. A good student at Quito, most of us strived to get the grades he got. He was a friend and will be missed.
Thalia was a friend, a neighbor and a team-mate on the Ravens. She was always sweet.

I remember Thalis through 'Girl"s Sports'. She always gave her best effort with calmness and control. She towered us on the vollyball team. I will always remember her beautiful smile and quiet strength.
Wayne and I met in Kindergarden at Quito School because there was no room at San Thomas. He was my first friend. So many good times over so many years. He was always laughing and a pleasure to be around. Thanks Wayne, your the best.
Sue, my best friend of 50 years, we had just talked on the phone 10 days before your passing. You did not go into detail about your health. You knew I would admonish you to see a doctor. You knew I would know what was wrong. Getting a call from Carl to get to your bedside I rushed with both daughters in tow. They waited for me as I was at your bedside watching you die.
Well babe, we always said we would share our funny stories about the gods and goddesses of YaHa on our vacation in Monterey and our misadventures getting lost in the Red Light District in Hawaii, our suck 'em up sail, etc. I hope you and my parents are catching up in heaven and I raise my cocktail glass to you my friend. May you rest in peace dear. Love, me.

I didn't know Sue that well in High School but she was my neighbor on Steinway in Campbell, she was a very sweet person Im sure she will be greatly missed by all who knew her...
I have great memories growing up with my cousin Larry Reese. He was a Marine and a wonderful guy. Larry Reese and my brother Don Pardini were both members of the class of 1970. Miss them and wish they could be with us.
