07/24/04 - NNHS Newsletter - Simply the Best

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Yesterday when I found H.P.'s message, I was concerned that I would be distributing it to y'all too late to accomplish
that which needed to be done   But I sent it off at abut 3:00 PM.  Within 45 minutes I received word that $1,000.00 had
been deposited into the Yevak's account.  Almost simultaneously, I learned that an anonymous donor had deposited
another $250.00 into that account.  Both of the these donations were made in cash, meaning that there would be no
waiting period; the money was available to them instantly.

   Astonished and flabbergasted, I hastily sent word to H.P. Lucas, Dave Arnold, and Ron Smith of what had been done,
and left a message on the Yevak's phone.  Then though I was still trembling, I feebly attempted to thank those individuals
for their extraordinary kindness in a time of critical emergency.

   Here is one of the replies I received: 

As you have so aptly reminded us from time to time, we need to take care of each other. 
Just glad we could help.
Take care, Carol

   At 5:46 PM I received this message from Dave Arnold: 

I just spoke to Bobby.  He's been in the rain all day at funerals.   He said he got the job offer today
by phone and should start Aug. 15.
 
That's great news about the deposit being covered, so I told him that while I had him on the phone. 
Makes you proud to know all these folks, doesn't it?

   Uhhh - those of you who know me are well aware that I am rarely at a loss for words.  Shutting me up is the hard part.
But on this occasion, in the face of this much munificence, I was completely speechless.  Even after more than twenty-four
hours, I find it difficult to reflect on this without choking up, as I know that more donations were forthcoming as well.

   From time to time I mention how proud I am to know y'all.  Once again, I'm not certain that I've been adequately able
to express this.  Many of you I am honored to count among my closest friends.  Your incredible generosity is but one reason
I feel so privileged to share the association with you that I do.  You are amazing, wonderful, talented, beautiful people.  You're
simply the best.

   Thank you so much - for everything.

   Y'all take care.

                                   Love to all, Carol

The Best

(Tina Turner)

Written by - Mark Chapman & Holly Knight

From - Foreign Affair


I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wild
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

In your heart, I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh, baby, don't let go

You're simply the best
Better than all the rest
Better than anyone
Anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby, I would rather be dead
