“The Touchette family lived in Indianapolis, Ind. on Dubarry Rd. By school #98 where the attended classes. This area is near 38th and post rd. the Northeastwood area. Michelle and I were classmates in 5th grade. 1968 ,1969 An odd thing is our teacher Mrs. McGrogan would ask the kids each month to stand up front so the class could sing Happy birthday to you and at the end of the school year those of us who had summer Birthdays would go up. Michelle and I share the same date 7-21-58. I remember her brothers were very good swimmers and divers at the Northeastwood Swimming pool and enjoyed watching them dive. Some names of school friends were (last names) Conner, Macy, Dibbern, Schroder, Garvey. I just recenty found out a little more about there move from Indy to California when talking to some classmates who have spoken to Mike Touchette.” - Anonymous
