Largo High School classmates Shems Hamilton, left, and Luisa Adamy hug after a brief memorial held Oct. 3 in Treasure Island for their classmates who have died. Largo High's Class of 1979 holds a reunion every October at Sunset Vista Beachfront Suites. Those in the group of 125, including a few classmates from other years, stood in a circle and read the names of the deceased before Adamy, of Connecticut, read a short poem she found on Pinterest called The Empty Chair. "We're closer now as a graduated class than we were in '79," Largo resident Oliver Kugler said.
