|"Bésame Mucho" (Kiss me a lot) is a song written in 1940 by
It is one of the most famous boleros, and was recognized in 1999 as the most sung and recorded Mexican song in the world.
She was inspired by the piano piece "Quejas, o la Maja y el Ruiseńor" from the 1911 suite Goyescas by Spanish composer Enrique Granados, which he later also included as Aria of the Nightingale in his 1916 opera of the same name.
There are slight differences in the wording at the end of the chorus, regarding the words perderte después meaning "to lose you afterwards". Considering that Velázquez may have been fifteen years old when she wrote the song, this sentence reflects inexperience and innocence. Indeed, a video from "TV Mexicana" shows Consuelo Velázquez playing the piano while the singer sings perderte después. Many interpretations use perderte otra vez ("lose you once again") instead of the original perderte después ("lose you afterwards").
The line "Besame mucho, que tengo miedo a perderte después" means "Kiss me a lot, as I am afraid of losing you afterwards." The word "mucho" may suggest a desire for the kiss to linger, as it may be the couple's last time being together.
"Bésame Mucho" is also known by translated names such as "Kiss Me Much," "Kiss Me a Lot," "Kiss Me Again and Again," "Embrasse-moi fort," "Stale Ma Bozkavaj," "Suutele minua", "Szeretlek én" and "Mara beboos"...

From Linda McKenna Sivilich ('66) of PA - 08/12/15 - "How to access a certain page?":
Wondering how to access the page that has what has happened to classmates?
Linda, I've been depleting my little grey cells trying to think of what you are seeking (mitigated by what I've forgotten over the past 14 years), but I think I've failed you completely.
Back when we first began on July 13, 2000, when the site was limited to members of the Class of 1965, we had but six sections on the site: Contact Page, In Memoriam Page, Teachers, Yearbook Pictures/Where We Are Now, News, and Odds and Ends.
As we kept expanding, those first two sections separated and expanded into classes accordingly, and some of the sections morphed into other things. The News Pages, while still available, have not been updated since 2006; they have been replaced by the Newsletters themselves (which began as a weekly feature, but have now become daily).
Sadly, I never completed the Yearbook Section (which probably comes closest to what you are describing), and with rare exceptions, it remains embarrassingly just as it was in 2000, but it never was intended to include any other classes.
All of the literally hundreds of pages (to which I now refer as the Archive) can be found on the Site Map: http://www.nnhs65.com/SITE-MAP.html
I hope this answers your question, but I rather believe it does not.
