“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days.
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th and
current Dalai Lama
This is a comforting song, wouldn't you agree? And who among us could not use a little comfort right now?

From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 / '68) of VA - 05/05/18 - "RE: Joyce Tedder Rossman ('68) and her husband, Carl Rossman, of PA":
It is with a very
heavy heart that I want to let my friends and family know that my
sister, Joyce Tedder Rossman, is very ill. She was recovering from her
auto accident when it was discovered that she had liver, lung and bone
cancer. Two days before hers was found, her husband, Carl, was diagnosed
with pancreatic cancer. Joyce had been recovering at home. They have
both been in chemo for 5 weeks or so. Carl is doing very well; Joyce,
however, has had to be put back in the hospital, had her second blood
transfusion but is not doing well at all. Carl called me this afternoon
to let me know how bad she was and what kind of "set back" she was
having. A week ago the doctors told her she might have 6-8 months but
Carl said the time would be much shorter now with this setback. She
called and told me about the cancer about 2 months ago but wanted me to
wait for a little while before I announced it. My heart is broken but I
wanted my friends to know what was going on. Please, please put them on
your prayer list.
Oh, Elizabeth, I am so very sorry to learn of this! I'm keeping all of y'all in my prayers, as are a great many other people, I am sure.
