Over the many years I have been writing, I have found many new friends, and renewed many old acquaintances. The letter I received from Mrs. Kauffman was a particularly treasured contribution to my column, as she recalled her beloved Bethel Lutheran Church on Johnston Avenue in Hamilton through her talent as a poet. Mrs. Kauffman probably forgot that I met her way back during my years as a classmate of her son Kieth, one of my singing buddies in Miss Louise Baird's music class. Her husband, Henry was one of our favorite Hamilton High teachers. Unfortunately, I had Herb Griffiths as my science teacher, and Mr. Kauffman specialized in Chemistry......a subject far above my mental capacity.
