Time to Say Goodbye
“Gone - flitted away,
Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Our Wizard of Wonderment, Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, first introduced this song to me almost four years ago. Isn't it lovely?!? Thank you, Brown Eyes!
I had chosen it for today's Newsletter on 05/03/07 when I truly believed we had come to the conclusion of many things. Now I'm delighted to use it because we have NOT, and now it's NOT time to say goodbye. YEA!!!
And a gigantic thanks to all of y'all who have made this possible!
1. Phil Hammond ('64) of UT - 05/08/07 - "Hello Classmates":
|This photo was Phil and
Sylvia (Hall) Hammond's 39th wedding anniversary dinner at Deer
Valley Ski Resort, where I work and ski year round. We have lived in
Park City, Utah for the past 5 years (semi retired, although Sylvia is the
bread winner of the family now). We love the small town living and the
beauty of the Wasatch mountains. I skied up until mid April at Snowbird this
year and started playing golf in April. Spring has finally set in and it is
It's so good to hear from you, Phil! I love Utah myself!

Thanks once again, Phil!
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/PHH-EMPLOYMENT-4.html - newly revised (but still in process)
We've received fabulous assistance from two impeccable sources on how to serious revise this. We will be working on this project this evening. We REALLY appreciate your help - thanks so much!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/28/07 - "first 20 minutes":
WOWZERONI-RINI!!! Shari, this may be the most important item you've ever sent me!!!
I have understood bits and snippets of this principle for years. I've even used it to my good advantage on a number of occasions. But I always placed it in the context of psychological mind tricks, rather than comprehending the Law of Magnetism as explained herein.
I'm going to keep trying to gain greater understanding of this law so that I may fully incorporate it in my life.
"Coincidentally" - NOT - I just encountered this quotation:
"Tomorrow's joy or tomorrow's despair has its roots in
decisions we make today. Perhaps some people think to themselves: 'I know I need
to change some things in my life. Maybe later, but not now.' Those who stand at
the threshold of life always waiting for the right time to change are like the
man who stands at the bank of a river waiting for the water to pass so he can
cross on dry land. Today is the day of decision."
- Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Three Choices," Ensign, Nov. 2003, 78
Thanks so much, Shari!
From Janice McCain Rose ('65) of VA - 05/05/07 - "OMG PHOTO":
|Look at the first picture and you can see where this guy broke through the guard rail (right side where the people are standing on the road). His truck left the road, traveling from right to left . He flipped end-over-end, across the culvert outlet and landed on the left side of it.|
Now look at the second picture.
|IF YOU WEREN'T A BELIEVER IN GOD BEFORE, WOULD YOU BE AFTER THIS?|
Well, I've never really been in that position, so I can't say for sure, but it certainly would strengthen the faith I have!
YOWZERONI-WOWZERONI!!! Thanks, Janice!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/06/07 - "for you":
|...to brighten up your day...
This is really beautiful, Shari! Thank you! It did just that!
From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern Virginia - 05/06/07 - "Phil Hoyle to Iraq":
Attached are two pictures of our son, Phil, his wife Tabitha, and 6
month old William Henry. Phil's Virginia Army National Guard unit has
been mobilized. They are down in Mississippi for training, and then on to Iraq
for a year. We will enjoy having Tabitha and William stay with us while Phil is

What a beautiful family! We will certainly keep you all in our prayers, Cousin Henry! Thank you again - for everything!
From Charlie Phillips ('65) of TN - 05/07/07 - "Dues":
Carol and fellow NNHS brothers and sisters,
My dues for access the NNHS Site are in the mail. Carol please use them as you see fit. i.e., electricity to run your computer, phone lines, pay for your wonderful time. It is really none of my business how you manage these monies. Please refer back to my last message on this subject last fall.
I so appreciate your efforts on behalf of all of us and in trying to keep us closer that I want to support you in this effort by subscription to this service you provide.
I beseech other class mates to subscribe to the newsletter and site. If only 1OO people were to pay $50.00/year - that’s less than $5.00 a month - Carol would have money necessary to operate. Pay more if you like. Carol, if you think dues should be higher let us know.
I suggest that access to the site be password controlled with
temporary access to new users so that they can enjoy and get hooked on the site.
If we support Carol in her efforts she and our splendid site will be less at
risk in the future.
Charlie Phillips “65”
Thank you so much, Sweet Charlie! You are my hero!
From Barbara Fritsche Barnes ('63) of VA - 05/07/07 - "Your Amazing Gift":
Thank you, Barb. I really feel quite honored to be in a position to post those Memorial editions. Again, you have my sincerest sympathy. Such times are just never easy.
I posted your note on Bill's page as well:
From Chuck Anspach ('60) of NC - 05/07/07 - "Help":
I hope this helps you in your time of need. I have enjoyed your
newsletters and can't wait till the newest one arrives.
Also please add my Birthday as 1/17/42.
Thanks for all you do!
Chuck Anspach (Class of 1960)
WOWZERS!!! I'm never certain who among our subscribers is actually reading the Newsletters or visiting the website, so your note came as a delightful surprise to me! And your donation was equally perfectly timed, and was indeed a great help! Thanks so much, Chuck!
And I posted your birthday:
I "moved" you to "the sacred soil of Virginia" for a few hours (as I am ever inclined to do), but I corrected that eventually.
From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 05/08/07:
Well, I have to go back out and create more hate and dissension amongst
the motoring public from my mobile observation platform. Anyway, stay on
THIS side for a while more; you have a lot of friends.
Jay Sweetie, you always manage to bring a big ol' smile to my face! Thanks so much!
From One of my Famous Marines - Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 05/09/07 - "Dear Carol, Wishing you Happiness Always, Especially on Mother's Day":
Happy Mothers Day
May 13, 2007
Herbie Darlin', you Sweetie-Pie! Thank you so much! I don't know how I missed including this in the Mother's Day edition:
I do not believe it was one of those "hiding" emails. Perhaps my brain was just still lost in space.....
No matter; the roses are breathtakingly lovely, they smell quite delicious, and now we can all enjoy them just that much longer!
And my Mother's Day was about as perfect as it possibly could have been, thanks!
From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 05/09/07:
I am, Butch! Thanks so much!
I had no idea!
But you're right, of course! Sometimes it just seems difficult to
see all that in the midst of the deeps....
I even remember being in a very similar situation to yours about 20 years ago; but found that friends and family have a way of jump starting us when we hit the low points; and my wife, kids and I bounced back; just as you are going to bounce back now! So keep your head up and keep your spirits up!
Since leaving Virginia 30 years ago for my new home in Colorado, my only way of keeping in touch with NNHS and former classmates has been through my brother
Thank you so very much, Butch! Your letter arrived late this afternoon. Oh - whatever gave you the idea I wouldn't remember you?!? I remember you quite well!
From My Cousin,Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) of VA - 05/11/07 - "Best Musical for You":
Hi, it's me!
Thanks again, Lady - for everything! (Details to follow later...)
FromBrenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 05/13/07:
Just opened my mail; I am in Richmond this weekend, helping out my daughter that is getting married in July. Just wanted you to know that happenings that were beyond my control caused our reunion committee to change the dates of our reunion. If you do not mind, please post them for me and also include that the years of NNHS 1960 to 1965 are invited to our Friday night affair. That the cost per person is $20, which includes being with all of us, food, and beverages, including beer and wine, plus a cash bar and will be held in the ballroom at the Point Plaza Hotel and Suites on October 12th. Our classmates will be celebrating on that night and the 13th, ending with breakfast on the 14th. We really had to change the dates from September, and were very fortunate to obtain another date at the same place. It should be a fun time for everyone. You know that we want you and hubby to be there again this year.
Thanks for posting this, you are wonderful for doing all you do.
Typhoons thru thick and thin.
Brenda A. Williams
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery
Today is a gift!
Thank you so much, Brenda! I switched those dates for you early Sunday morning on the main page and on the Mother's Day Newsletter. I finally managed just now to post it in the Reunion News:
