“The walls we build around us to keep sadness out
also keeps out the joy.


-
Jim Rohn
(17 Sept 1930 - 05 Dec 2009)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Few singers have ever equaled the soothing velvet tones of Jim Reeves insofar as "comfort sounds". I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for some comfort right about now.

SAD NEWS:

 From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 04/26/16, 10:30 AM - "Death of Classmate":

Hi Carol:

I am getting ready to go to Jesse Kersey’s ('58) funeral and thought I would shoot an email to you regarding the death of a classmate.

It is in the Daily Press today, Wed., 04/26 that
Jeanette Fowler Barrett passed away. She was in my class, class of 1960. She had a brother, Billy, class of 1961; he graduated with my wife Patty (Andrews). He predeceased Jeanette.

Jeanette was a nice girl and I recall that I was in the 4th grade with her at Walter Reed, the one year I went there. She sat directly behind me and beside Mary Frances Koskinas. Jeanette’s funeral is private, per the newspaper.

Take care my friend and keep up the good work.

Best Regards, Fred Mays, ‘60

   Thank you so much, Fred! With my great gift for denial, I would have missed this, as I didn't know Jeanette. I read her obituary and thought it must surely be another family of Fowler's, as I had no idea that Billy (whom I remember so well from Band) had died, nor have I been able to locate an obituary for him. You and Patty have my sympathies on the passing of your classmates.

From Jim Rohn's Newsletter - 04/25/16 - "How to Make Yourself More Valuable":

How to Make Yourself More Valuable

By Jim Rohn


I'm a very big proponent of activity, labor and discipline. In fact I devoted one of the five major pieces of the life puzzle to the subject of activity and labor. But now, let me add another key word to the labor equation—skillful. Yes, skillful labor.

We need the skills to help build our family's dreams, the skills to stir up an enterprise and make it successful. We need skills to build equities for the future. We need skills of all kinds.

How about this: skillful language. If you just talk to your family, you can hold them all together, but if you skillfully talk to your children, you can help them build dreams for the future. You can't be lazy in language—it costs too much. What if you meant to say, “What's troubling you?" and instead you said, "What's wrong with you?" That's too big of a mistake. And sure, maybe you’ve made that mistake 10 years ago, but not now. You should always be improving in language and communication.

Skills multiply labors by two, five, 10, 50, 100 times. You can chop a tree down with a hammer, but it takes about 30 days. That’s called labor. But if you trade the hammer in for an ax, you can chop the tree down in about 30 minutes. What's the difference in 30 days and 30 minutes? Skills—skills make the difference.

So do what you can—labor. But also do the best that you can do—improved skills. And you will find that the labor combined with skills will start producing miracles—miracles with your money, miracles with your family and miracles in every part of your life.


We do not know when he is coming. He is coming tomorrow.”

- Eugene Ormandy, conductor
(18 Nov 1899 - 12 Mar
1985)

Four Walls

Written by Marvin Moore and George Campbell, 1957

Recorded by Jim Reeves (20 Aug 1923 – 31 July 1964), 1957


Out where the bright lights are glowing
You're drawn like a moth to a flame
You laugh while the wine's over-flowing
While I sit and whisper your name

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me

Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting
But my walls have nothing to say
I'm made for love, not for waiting
But here where you've left me, I'll stay

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me

One night with you is like heaven
And so, while I'm walking the floor
I'll listen for steps in the hallway
And wait for your knock on my door

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me
