Cooper's Commencement from University of Massachusetts

On May 22, 2005, Cooper graduated as a voice performance major from University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
Cooper and Grant are pictured here with Chancellor Lombardi who was always supportive of Cooper's musical work in the Doo-Wop Shop.

5,000 students graduated that cold, raw day in a packed Quirk Stadium. Below, Mother, Cooper, Cindy and Grant, we were a bit damp:

Our corner at the Escargot

We're missing Nancy very, very much but still maintaining the tradition of our birthday dinners at the Escargot in Marlboro.

Here, Mom, Pam and I gather around the illuminated creme brulee to celebrate my birthday. Pam showed us photos of her new house (!) on the display of her mom's small digital camera. We're looking forward to seeing it live and in person.

It was a duck choo chee night along with Nam Sod, Pad Thai and Masaman curry (a nod to Nancy; plenty of peanuts).
