Stories by Herb Walden, FLBHS Class of 1956

 
   
Below you will find 34 stories that I published over the years in the Bisonalities Again Newsletter. All the stories were written by a good friend of mine, from the class of 1956, Herb Walden. Herb, and his family, lived in Waterford for many years. He moved away after high school to attend college. After college he became a teacher in the Albion school system. Shortly thereafter his father died and he moved his mother from Waterford to a farm in Albion, where they resided until their deaths, under strange circumstances, in June of 2010.
