From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 04/04/10, 7:52 AM - "Morgenstern Obit.":
Good Morning Carol, Sunday, Apr. 4, 2010
Sad news this Easter morning. The obituary of my NNHS classmate, Jules Morgenstern appears in today's Daily Press. We were both graduates in the Class of June, 1945.
The Morgenstern family owned the China Palace on Washington Avenue.

|I think that this has been around before,
but its still something worth reading. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank you, Paul!
From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN - 04/03/10 - "Sleeping in Church":
A young minister fresh out of the seminary was assigned to his first church. It didn't take him long to discover that one member of his new congregation, an elderly gentlemen, fell asleep every Sunday morning during his sermon. After a couple of months of this he decided to do something about it.
The next Sunday as soon as the old man nodded off the pastor stopped his sermon and looked out at the congregation and said in a rather soft voice, "Everybody here who wants to go to Heaven, stand up." Every person in the audience immediately stood up except for the old gentleman who slept on, oblivious to everyone around him.
The pastor then said, "Okay, everybody please sit down." Then he said, "Now, everybody that wants to go to Hell, STAND UP." He yelled the last two words at the top of his lungs. The sleeping man was startled awake and leaped to his feet in confusion.
The pastor looked at him and said, "Mr. Jones, do you know why your are standing?"
Mr. Jones looked around the church and then looked back at the pastor and said, "I don't know, Preacher, but it looks like you and me are the only ones for it."
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/03/10 - "One Thing To Never Forget":
HERE I AM TO WORSHIP
Your presence, is a present to the world.
You're unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be, what you want it to be.
Take the days, just one at a time.
Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You'll make it through, whatever comes along.
Within you, are so many answers.
Understand, have courage, be strong.
Don't put limits on yourself.
So many dreams, are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important, to leave to chance.
Reach for your peak, your goal and your prize.
Nothing wastes more energy, than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem, the heavier it gets.
Don't take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.
Remember, that a little love goes a long way.
Remember, that a lot of love goes forever.
Remember, that friendship is a wise investment.
Life's treasures, are people... together.
Realize, that it's never too late.
Do ordinary things, in a extraordinary way.
Have health, hope and happiness.
Take the time, to wish upon a star.
And don't ever forget....
For even a day....
How very special you are.
Thank you so much, Shari! I enjoyed the slide presentation accompanying the song of praise; it's a nice mixture of protestant, Latter-day Saint, and Catholic images of the Saviour.

Text: Anonymous Latin; trans. by Francis Pott,
Music: Giovanni P. da Palestrina; arr. by W.H. Monk
Tune: VICTORY, Meter: 888 with Alleluias
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
1. The strife is o'er, the battle done;
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun:
2. The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed;
let shouts of holy joy outburst:
3. The three sad days are quickly sped;
he rises glorious from the dead;
all glory to our risen Head!
4. Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee,
from death's dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live, and sing to thee:
