Wynne and I were both in D-2. He was an outspoken Jewish boy from Brooklyn and I was a soft-spoken Jewish boy from a small southern town in western North Carolina.We marched together each Sunday morning to Jewish services held in the Old Cadet Chapel. Rabbi B.A. Tintner drove up from New York each Sunday morning to conducted our services. After services Wynne and I usually walked back to Washington Hall together for Sunday morning breakfast. Wynne had a sharp wit and always a story to tell of his growing up in Brooklyn. He was an exceptional athlete and a lover of baseball at which he excelled. Wynne and I did not see much of each other after graduation since he went into the Army and I into the Air Force. Our only contact was at an occasional reunion. I looked forward to seeing him as he always greeted me with a big smile and a welcoming handshake. He was so much looking forward to being at our forthcoming 55th reunion in May. I will miss seeing him and I have an emptyness in my heart knowing that he will not be there. His passing has made me very aware of my mortality.
