Received Cousin Linda's e-mail about 5 minutes ago.
Here is the obit:
Oh, no, I'm so sorry to hear this! I read her obituary and just didn't pick up on what I was reading. Thank you for letting me know, David.
From Linda Lane Lane ('64) of VA - 07/28/13, 6:17 PM - "Death of Mary Reed - Mother of Warren Reed":
|Warren Read, our class sponsor, lost his mother
this past week. It was only in the DP on Friday. I believe the service
is this coming Wednesday in Newport News. I worked with her in the ER at
Riverside for many years. She was easy to love.
Linda L. Lane
Thank you so much, Linda-Linda! You have my condolences on the loss of your friend.
From Jim Brinkley ('65) of IN - 07/28/13:
I just now saw your newsletter. Thanks for all the hard work you have been doing to keep us all informed about our friends and schoolmates. I hope that you will take some time to rest and relax for awhile. It sounds like you really need it. I hope and pray that Paul's surgery went well and that he will have a full recovery.
..... I am trying to find time now for more rest and relaxation myself. I hope you and Paul will find some time to rest and relax also.
Thank you so very much, Jim! We're trying to do just that - between juggling doctor's appointments!

Fly Me To The Moon
Words and Music byBart Howard
Well ... I really wanted the theme from the film "The Right Stuff", but I
could find no such MIDI.
Also, I am not so sure that it would have been all that recognizable.
So, on to Plan "B" ... and something much more recognizable, albeit less heroic:
