Hopelessly Devoted to You
I have tried to do in life, I have tried with all my heart to do it well;
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJpyG3PXoKw - Hopelessly Devoted to You - Olivia Newton-John
SUPER BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbe1m30RS8c - Hopelessly Devoted to You - Kristin Chenoweth (Olive) singing in a 2007 clip from ABC's "Pushing Daisies"; I REALLY loved that show! It was like nothing else on tellybision - which meant, of course, that it simply had to be cancelled, and sure enough, it was. :o(
HEALTH UPDATE:From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) - phone call of 01/07/10, 9:10 PM:
I came home from the hospital today where I'd been since Sunday. My asthmatic bronchitis advanced all the way to pneumonia, because I just kept pushing myself, thinking I could fight my way through it. That was my first trip in an ambulance. Because of the extreme cold, the attendants pulled the covers up over my face. I protested, "But my neighbors will think I've died!"
They said, "They'll get over it."
Take it easy and get well
