I was just on the web site and saw that Sandy Kelly Allar died.  Does anyone have any more information on when and why?  We had been friends since we were 12 and I had lost contact with her several years ago and really would appreciate any information. Thank you in advance.

I discovered Edí s musical talents when he was just a small kid. Every time my band would practice, he would want to be there, especially near my drummer Mike. Ed took to music & drums like no one I have ever met, and surpassed all of his teachers with flying colors. I remember when Ed, Lex and Dennis played at the 1964 Worlds Fair. Three small kids climbed on the stage, and everyone made fun of them, because of their size. Ed could barely see over his drums. The laughter soon turned to screaming & applauding as soon as they started to play. Nobody ever expected such a dynamic sound to come from these three little kids. Ed was a dynamic force who surrounded himself with fine musician friends and was loved by all of them. He had the musical passion & soul I lacked, and was the true musician I always wanted to be. I was absolutely his biggest fan. Having Ed as a friend has been my honor, but having him for my brother, has made me truly blessed. Ed was the most giving person and the best brother & friend any person could ever ask for and the biggest loss of my life. Edís brother: Eric Hilton

The following is from the S.U.N.Y. Binghamton Alumni Journal, Winter 2002:

Jeffrey G. Goldflam, '75 was a senior vice president and chief financial officer of eSpeed, Inc., the electronic bond trading arm of Cantor Fitzgerald. He worked at 1 World Trade Center. "Jeff's presence and the way he conducted himself always had a way of making people smile, particularly me," said Howard Lutnick, chairman and CEO of eSpeed, Inc., in a Business Wire report. "His facility with numbers and figures made each quarter a pleasure, as we were always able to focus on the business and vision of the company, because we knew Jeff was commanding and protecting the finances. His wife, Risa, and their two children can always look to eSpeed as a symbol of their husband and father's caring ways."

Marlene was a very sweet girl with a good sense of humor. I remember having a crush on her, and in Schulz's physics class she was one of the smartest. I was very sorry to hear she had died. - Jeff Powitz

I remember enjoying his drumming in the band "The Vistas" that he, Lex Marchesi, and Brian McQuade had. I watched several practice sessions of theirs. A current hobby of mine is to play digital drums along with music, and I frequently think of him when I do so. - Jeff Powitz
