d£)edicati on ( izia : Instead of dedicating our yearbook to a teacher, as has been the custom, this year we elected to dedicate the Lamp to Todd Malizia because he played an important part in our past and his death affected all of us in some way. Some of us attended elementary school with Todd while others did not meet him until junior high; but all who knew him remember his great sense of humor, his personality, and his special attitude on life. It was his attitude that gave him the courage to keep fighting his leukemia. The fortitude he displayed during his battle taught everyone who knew him that, they too, should keep fighting — no matter how bad things get. Each of us has our own memories of times spent with Todd and we will cherish them forever. We may not think of him as often as we used to but de- dicating our yearbook to him is one way for the Class of 1986 to take Todd with us as we leave Berlin High — WJi was inst a h ' e was just a ooy rom a Sma (it own BERLIN — It has been a bad month for the world. A princess, a president-elect and Todd Malizia died. For Malizia, however, there will be no international dignitaries, no special news bulletins. After all, he was just a young boy living in a small town. It was just a few years ago Malizia learned he had leukemia. It hit him hard and caused his hospitalization. He lost weight, hair and precious time. But it didn’t stop him. He recovered sufficiently enough last year to return to one of his loves, sports and starred on a Midget Football team that won the town championship. The youth was cited by the league for his outstanding play, and was also honored for his remarkable comeback. But the disease became worse and Todd was again forc- ed to the sidelines. He gave it his best shot. And anyone who says Todd Malizia lost his bout with leukemia is sadly mistaken. Because in the final analysis, when the crowns and presidential seals are laid aside and only the things of which character is made remain, the young teenager from Berlin will be holding his head up just as proudly as any royalty or head of state. School. DEDICATION
