Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

The Peace Corps time was a great and rich experience, everyone was so joyful and full of life. Both teachers and volunteers learn so much from that experience. I miss all the great friends I met.

Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:

Mostly everyone from the Spring '77 training. I can't remember many last names at the moment, but would like to find the first returnees who greeted me at arrival in US: Edward Hanrahan & wife (Maine or East Coast); Jean Mejia (nurse, Colorado), Christine Robinson (nurse, Minneapolis), Nancy Woodworth (NY State), Keith Clement, Mary Ann Reber (Texas or Florida), and many others.

Any message for returned volunteers?:

You guys are the greatest and most honorable North-Americans I ever met. The world has learned a lot about peace with your spirit of volunteerism, caring and giving. I wish the Peace Corps would return to help the poorest communities of Brazil.
