“Friendships are fragile things, and require as much handling
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think it's time for a sad old love song - but then, I almost always think it's time for a sad old love song.

The song was ranked as the 327th greatest song of all-time by Rolling Stone magazine in 2004.
The song has been covered numerous times with many versions reaching the US charts as well, including a new version by Butler himself, who peaked at number 99 on the Hot 100 chart in March 1966.
The 1968 version in South Africa by Durban group, The Flames, reached the top spot on the local charts and has been considered a classic in the country ever since.

From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 07/08/15 - " Janet Lee Peebles (Host - HHS / NNHS - June '47) trivia":
FYI, in 1942 she christened one of the Landing Ship, Tanks built at NNS.
There were eighteen of these vessels built - six at a time. They were
all christened by daughters of shipyard officials.
The LST she christened - LST-385 - was in the first group of six of these sea-going amphibious craft; all of them were christened and floated out of their common building dock on September 28, 1942. In the attached image, Janet Lee Peebles is shown alongside her father, in company with the other young ladies (and their proud poppas) who shared that honor of being a sponsor of a NNS-built ship with her.
