From Dr. Martin Buoncristiani (physics prof.), currently in Victoria, Australia:
I am a 2nd Decader happy to attend the 1st Decade picnic. I am returning to the US a few days before and will drag my jet lagged body to see everyone there.
By the way, I do enjoy the publication and seeing the photos from another time (and place). Well done. Marty

I just read [Dr. Jane's] tribute to Odell Jackson. It brought some tears to my eyes. Didn't know how emotional I could be until I began this journey down memory lane. I so wish he could have been found before he died. I recognized Mr. Jackson from the picture taken of him in the 70's. He was definitely an important part of the CNC family.
Many, many thanks for the first decader materials! I was looking forward to the event for a long time and got stuck with needing a pacemaker Friday morning--I figured I would be done but they decided I needed to spend the night in the hospital. The dinner also fell to the same problem. I have many fond memories of those early years--when we had a real mission--and would have loved to visit with everyone. I retired three years ago and observed that it wasn't my CNC/CNU anymore. I used to really love the students we served, but during my last five years or so of work students were anything but motivated as the early students were. I am very glad I was at the college in those early years and will always be a first decader--that is an honor.
