June 22, 2006

English professor Gary Bouchard received a standing ovation June 17, when he gave the commencement address to the graduating class of the John Stark Regional High School in Weare, N.H. A standing-O for a commencement speaker is almost as unusual as the manner in which Bouchard offered the speech — in nearly 180 rhyming couplets.

    Gary, found this through your brother, Harold also enjoyed your family letter…….I loved the commencement speech……..and plan on sharing it with others I have met in my lifetime so far. Actually brought a tear to my eye…..reminded me of the eulogy you did for Pepere. Will be looking for you on CNN tomorrow night and sorry but can’t help out with the donation you requested either……Love your cousin.
