After Olney High, I went to Temple University and received a BA in psychology. Upon graduation from Temple I went to their dental school for my D.M.D. Then I went to University of Pennsylvania for endodontics. I practiced ENDODONTICS for 31 years, taught same at Temple Dental, University of Pennsylvania and Albert Einstein Medical Center (still there teaching). Retired from practice around 2007. Since retirment I have devoted my time to writing. In February my book, From Waiting Room to Courtroom, How Doctors Can Avoid Getting Sued was published. In August My most recent book was released by Basic Health Publishers, a division of Turner Publishing. It's called, THE SEXLESS MARRIAGE FIX - RESCUING A SEXLESS MARRIAGE AND MAKING IT ALL IT CAN BE USING THIS EMPOWERING APPROACH. It's filled with great ideas, not just for married people and not just for sex, but for all interpersonal relationships. I feel that this book will help people to talk about what no one wants to talk about. I have been blessed with two children - a boy and a girl as well as two grandchildren - a boy and a girl. Looking back, I do believe that my greatest accomplishment was having the joy of watching my children grow into wonderful adults. I suppose we all reminisce about our youth, and since anticipation is such a wonderful force, looking forward to our reunion. That will feed the craving over the coming year.
P.S. my first novel is being released September, 27th, 2018... The Divine Affliction. Writing has been a wonderful new avocation. We all need purpose and it can be found in family, hobbies and career.

School Story

My funny story is actually related to our 25th reunion. With great anticipation I counted each day toward that day. I just couldn't wait to see all of my friends from yesteryear. The more I thought about it, the grander the vision. After all, I was the most popular kid in our grade (in my mind). I couldn't wait to see the hundreds of friends I made over those four years. The night before the reunion, I decided to review my old yearbook so I wouldn't forget anyone's name. Pretty soon it dawned on me, I knew about fifty people in our class of nine hundred plus. And of those 50 I was actually friends with 25. Some popular guy was I - not! When reading my old yearbook I saw the many notes you guys and gals wrote, and for the life of me I didn't remember "the great conversations at lunch," "the hours we spent on the phone," "all those stories you told me," and "how funny you are with such a great personality." Actually that one I remember, but if I had to guess this wasn't even my yearbook I had in my possession all these years later. So what's the meaning of this? Our perceptions and our realities diverge at some point in our lives, and a reunion helps to revisit that reality. Can't wait to see you all! Just hope I can remember MY name.

I knew Arnold as a classmate, but was never friendly with him. My sister was best friends with his sister, Roberta. All that I remember was that he was very smart and troubled. Perhaps this letter explains some of this. Growing up in a time when gay lifestyles were shrouded in darkness had to be difficult for Arnold and especially for his son. It was bold of Jarred to shar this letter and perhaps offers light to others. Thanks for the insight.

So here's how dementia works... You see a photo of someone from your past. You are sure you know them. But you can't quite remember how you knew them. Then you think, maybe you didn't know them, but they sure look familiar. Then a few years later you look at their photo and think...who's that. Never met them in my life. It made me feel better to see that Jill, "might remember your face." I immediately thought, "I know Helene Shapiro, but then upon looking in my yearbook I realized I was thinking of Susan Shapiro. Low and behold, you are not a Shapiro, so off to the Stein page. Yeah, I think I knew you. No, I'm not sure now. And that folks is dementia. BTW, I don't even have dimentia ...yet. It's actually a lot of fun doing this 50th reunion thing!

Hi Michael, great to see your name pop up. Your story reminded me of when I, too, sat behind John Bussel in some class (not music). He used to lean back in his chair and balance himself on the back two legs of the chair. A lot of us used to do that. Anyway, I was always worried the chair would collapse, and I would be found a floor below crushed to death by the big fella. Those certainly were the days!

Wow! 34 years teaching in Philadelphia. Must have been a challenge. I'm sure you helped.
