Dear MUSTANGS,
Well, here it is, MY HOME PAGE of the "Class of 1970." Stop in here, anytime, to find out the latest news on members of our class and other classes, reunion updates, and more! Be sure to e-mail me with news about yourself and your family that I can include! You can write me at my home address given above, or send e-mail to me.

John Jay High School opened in September 1967 and we were the school's very first sophomore class. So, that means we've known one another for over 30 years, now. I spent my freshman year over in Brindisi, Italy, but a lot of you went to 9th grade at Sul Ross, Holmes, or Marshall, and even went to junior high and elementary school together, so, you've been friends for 35, 40 years, or more. Whatever the case may be, we have formed lifelong friendships that have withstood the test of time. It is in that spirit of friendship that I work very hard to stay in touch with our classmates. Each of you are very special people and no matter where you are in your life, always know that the "1970 MUSTANGS" are with you all the way!

People are always asking me why I bother spending so much time and effort in the past 15 years, organizing our reunions and keeping this web site on-line. Well, my days at John Jay High School were some of the happiest that I have ever had in my life. Some of the words to the BEATLES song, "In My Life" perhaps, explain it best for me, as to how I feel about all of you....

"There are places I remember, all my life, though some have changed. Some forever, not for better. Some have gone and some remain. All these places had their moments with lovers and friends, I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living, in my life I've loved them all. But of all these friends and lovers, there is no one compared with you.... I know I often stop and think about them. In my life I've loved you more."

If I can ever be of help to any of you, in any way, never hesitate to call me.

By the way, there is a lot to this web page. Please be sure to scroll all the way down to see everything. Check it out... check it ALL out!

And hey! Let's be careful out there!

Love Is All Around,
Dennis M. DuPriest '70
