('57) of MD - Enduring love.":
Norm, we're continuing with our prayers and happy thoughts!
Give Harry our love, keep us in the loop, please, and thank you for your
prayers on my behalf! I seem to be much improved.
Webdoll, I have
been, by necessity, off the "net" communicating with the Typhoon
fraternity/sorority for an extended time. You have not given up on me in
so many years of service. Let me update the Leonard Zimet 1957 Trombone
section of the Typhoon marching band. Harry Covert ('57) and his silver
Conn t-bone are facing major changes this week. The horn is on standby
in my basement, Harry's cancer is attacking him viciously. His baby
brother Norm ('61) is trying to keep him in line, but he needs prayers
to get body and soul together.
We reminisced the other day about playing Saturday morning pickup football on the grass and concrete strip adjacent to the home ec classrooms on 32nd street. Oh, the bumps and bruises with no pads, couple of us with leather helmets! The camaraderie! I will update Harry's status with good news, I trust.
To you. Webdoll, prayers for your recovery this Palm Sunday.
MORE YIKES! Thank you, Norm, we're continuing with our prayers and happy thoughts! Give Harry our love, keep us in the loop, please, and thank you for your prayers on my behalf! I seem to be much improved.
From Lynn Walker Brothers ('65) of VA - 04/01/20, 12:57 PM - "55-Year Class Reunion for the Class of 1965":
|March 31, 2020
Due to the current situation with the coronavirus, it is necessary to cancel our 55-Year Class Reunion.
We plan on rescheduling this event in the fall. We will keep you posted.
I heard this quote today which seemed so
appropriate for the time,“What you focus on, you create more of,” so
instead of focusing on the negative, find positive ways of dealing with
the anxiety created by this virus, that we are all experiencing, and
stay safe. Hope to see everyone in the fall.
QUITE UNDERSTANDABLE! Thank you so much, Lynn!

is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the
result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be
successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow.
But any action is better than no action at all.”
