“Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think there's an excellent chance that wherever you are today, it's misting, dripping, sprinkling, pouring, or storming. Of course, that might just be my goofy perception.

From Jeanette McDonald Hornsby ('66) of SC - 06/28/16:
|All you Typhoon out there:
Dee Hodges Bartram ('66) of
VA just called to tell me that her 48 year old son, Brian,
passed away this morning.
There will be a service next Tuesday night and information should be in the paper this weekend. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
Oh, NO, Jeanette! I can scarcely imagine such a thing! Parents are not supposed to outlive their children. Thank you for letting us know. We'll pray for Dee and her family, and watch for more information.
WV FLOODING ALARM:
From Donna Price Devers ('66) of NC - 06/28/16 - " Bobby Callis ('64) of WV":
|Typhoon Nation, we have another
Typhoon who could use our help.
Bobby Callis had 4 1/2' of floodwater in his house...and his house sits about 4 1/2' off the ground! He's lost everything on the first floor and a storage building that was swept 200' onto a ball field. He hopes to retrieve some hand tools there, but power tools will be lost. In addition to furniture, all appliances, etc., his daughter's car was ruined. He has insurance on his house, but not on the contents. This flood has been just devastating, but he's thankful he still has his house and family, and someone has loaned him a trailer (80 miles away!) while he cleans up his home.
Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
If you'd like to help Bobby, this
is his address:
Oh, Donna, thank you so much for telling us how we can help! Of course, I've placed his name on the Prayer Roll, and we'll be keeping Bobby and his family in our hearts and prayers.
From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 06/28/16 - "Prayer list":
|In 2005 my son passed
away and his wife took the 2 small kids to California to be with her
parents. She got back into drugs (a teenage problem), moved her drug
dealer boyfriend in with them, and finally went to jail. It took us
almost 4 years to get the state to let us have the kids. My daughter
Sheri and her husband Doug adopted them 4 years ago. Through it all, the
wife's sister, Vivian, has been a rock of support. Last year she had
early stage breast cancer and through treatment, was cured. We all
Yesterday, while investigating a back pain, they found tumors all over. She is looking into treatment and needs all the prayers she can get.
She and Ian have 5 children, the next to the youngest just turned 8 and was baptized this past Saturday. They are a beautiful, faithful family and do so much for Jon's kids. We are all heartbroken over this news.
Please keep her and the family in your prayers as they go through this trial.
Love to all,
Oh, NO! Ruthie, I'm so very sorry to hear of all this! We will keep Vivian and your entire family in our prayers!

Thanks so much, Susan!
for the birthday greetings, Cousin Carol.
We are in Harrisonburg at the Bike Virginia Tour, which is 6 days of bicycling.
Today Yvonne (Peters Hoyle - Hampton HS - '64 - of Northern VA) put a “Happy Birthday” sign on my recumbent trike. As we did our 58 mile ride, many who passed called out Happy Birthday, and a number of them sang as well. Attached is a picture from the tour headquarters. While many camped, we enjoyed a nice soft bed in a motel.
HOW MARVELOUS! Thank you, Cousin Henry! I'm glad you and Yvonne are having such fun - and I love your version of "camping"!
