Do you have a favorite story or memory about BBG/AZA, Temple Youth, Jewish Center?

As I search my emotional memory my most relevant and touching childhood experiences were at the old Jewish Community Center with Robert Golden, Stan Rosenfeld, jerry Kowsky and many more childhood guys and gals of my era.

Hi Ben,

Early in 1990 Sandy and I were having an open house and invited Stan, my Bar Mitzvah freind  to our house. He did not show up and a few dayslater found out from Jerry Kosowsky Stan had a heart attack that evening. His health deteriated and he needed a heart transplant. Stan was adopted and Florence his mom was still alive when he passed away on December 31st 1991. He had two daughters with Maureen and later married Georglyn. Stan had a great sense of humor and a very kind soul. From the age of about 12 through college at PC and then ASU we remained friends. As I write this note I can hear him saying hey Five ( short for Fivel)

As the years pass it is interesting that I feel more like my parents generation than our high school selves. With the continued passing of friends and family from our generation the window closes, yet we still have today to make a difference. I hope you Rich and family are all doing well.

I remeber Cliff form AZA days. I am sorry for his passing. A life lived well far beyond our short encounters in school and Jewish events. I guess we all have lives far beyond growing up in Phoenix, or maybe because we did grow up in Phoneix. Sorry for Cliffs passing, but the legacy will stay in my mind and heart.

Susie,
Well I guess at t3 a few days doesn't matter much at this stage. I hope all is well with your family. How many grandchildren, and if so do any live in Phoenix? EVERYTHING here is fine. Three grandchildren, 2 in KC and i in Boston. I am still teaching full time at UMKC.(University of Missouri Kansas City) Been there 11 years now and hope to continue for years to come. Sandy retired from the classroom like you and now teaches at Rockhurst University and mentors student teachers. She loves still connecting to the classroom.
Love Flip

I remenber Wayne so well. he had a brilliant mind that never seemed to have a lack of creativity. I recall after he got involved with radio stations as an owner and he had already finished law School his comment  about a mutual friend who also was a lawyer. Wayne said oh he always will be a lawyer. Implying Waynes law degree was only a route to better aspirations beyond law. Wayne was asweet sincere man with a powerful heart that lightened up a room.
