    James congratulations on your retirement and I hope you have enjoyable time, as you relax and kick up your feet. You deserve it! It doesn’t feel like 47 years ago when we were on line for the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, but it has been. Hope to see you at homecoming. Until then be of good cheer and health. Fraternally yours, Steve Schley
