Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's Frank again - with another fine sad love song. There's no midi file for it (if indeed your computer even plays midi files anymore), so just enjoy Frank's beautiful voice.

Thanks so much, Susan!
THE VERDICT IS IN:
From Me ('65) of NC - 10/03/15, 8;55 to 10:56 AM:
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Due primarily to frustration, I haven't issued an announcement since 08/12, but the Newsletters - Memorial Editions, Holiday Editions, Special Editions, and the good old regular variety - have continued to be posted. (There are several issues still missing, but we'll talk about that later.)
I'm going to try to send you the main Newsletter link (where you will find the last seven weeks or so of exciting issues) three different ways. If you would be so kind as to report back to me which way or ways work for you, I think we may at last return to business as usual. Thanks so much!
METHOD C: NNHS-Newsletters - 2015
Remember those who weep and mourn - and take good care of each other!
Love to all, Carol
From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 10/03/15, 10:36 AM:
Hope you are not soaking wet! So happy hurricane didn’t come on US land, couldn’t imagine what devastation it would do; rain is bad enough!
You do not have to e-mail me when you upload another newsletter. I have the newsletter site bookmarked and check it every day. Thank you for all your work– I find everything very interesting.
Blessings to you and Paul,
June Veneris Collie
so much, June!
You made my morning!
From Mike Sagman ('66) of VA - 10/03/15, 10:52 AM:
Had a great time at the get together a few weeks ago. Really enjoyed seeing so many nice people from NNHS.
Regarding your question, I wasn't sure exactly what you wanted me to do. So, I clicked on all 3 links. Method A and Method C produced what appeared to be the exact same rendition.
However, Method B produced a server error: HTTP 404 - File Not Found
Hope this is what you needed.
Oh, BTW... please note that my email address is one I only rarely use. I changed my email address over 10 years ago and keep forgetting to update you. My correct email address is now:
Thanks so much, Mike! Glad y'all had so much fun; that's how reunions should be!
your email switched in my files now. Let me know if you'd like it
posted; otherwise I'll keep it private.
From Thelma Baker ('65) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:00 AM:
I don't see any
difference in A or C.
Thanks for your hard work.
From Nancy Winall ('70) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:45 AM:
|Hi Carol! I hope that you
and your family are doing well. Methods A and C worked for me. I have
missed the newsletters!
Take care and God bless....Nancy
Thanks so much, Nancy! If I should fall silent again, just check this link:
Often I think maybe I
can do "just one more thing" before I announce them, and invariably I
just collapse into bed before I can!
From Peggy Sue Johnson ('60) of VA - 10/03/15, 11:47 AM:
A & C
both work fine. B does not work.
Thanks, Peggy Sue!

p.s. Did I tell you that we have a grandchild??? He will be three in March, has red hair and blue eyes and is the cutest and sweetest child ever born!!!
You have a darling little
red haired, blue eyed grandson, too?!? That's fabulous - and just one
more thing we have in common!
From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of Northern VA - 10/03/15, 3:41 PM:
Method A worked fine.
I hope C will work
equally well! If not, please contact me immediately!
From Sylvia Hall Hammond ('66) of FL - 10/03/15, 4:07 PM:

Take care of yourself and thank you for your dedication.
so much, Sylvia!
You hang in there, too!
From Betty Brockwell McClure ('58) of MA - 10/03/15, 4:31 PM:
Methods A and C work for me and appear to be the same.
Method B tells me that the page cannot be found.
Thank you for all you do!

From Joan Hott, Wife of Coach Harlan Hott of WV - 10/03/15, 4:37 PM:

Thank you, Wayne
You "TC", too!
From Jim Brinkley ('65) of IN - 10/03/15, 9:05 PM:
It is good to hear from you again. I hope that everything is well with you and your family. I tried all three methods as you requested. Methods "A" and "C" worked well. Method "B" did not work at all. I am having computer problems, however, so my computer may not be a good test. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for all your hard work in keeping us all informed.
Thanks so much, Jim!
Your computer may be
doing better than you thought! It seems at least to agree with most of
From Brenda Davis English ('64) of KS - 10/03/15, 10:26 PM:
|All 3 worked great. Thank you
for all you do for us. I try to get on the computer at least once a
month when I am strong enough. Please know that you and your family are
in my prayers and you are appreciated. God bless.
Thank you so much, Brenda; I
think of you so often!
Y'all are in my prayers
From Michele Shelton Sokol ('66) of CA - 10/04/15, 9:29 AM:
For me "C" is the only one which works. Thanks for all your hard work.
so very much, Michele!
From Billy Turner ('65) of TX - 10/04/15, 4:22 PM:
A and C worked for me. Thank u for your efforts. God Bless u and yours.
TURNER! Thanks so
much - you, too!
From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 10/04/15, 8:32 PM:
A and C worked for me. Been reading as I can.
has been working in NJ at the Salem Power Station and I have tried to
spend about 10 to 12 days up there with him a month. He comes home one
weekend a month for about 5 days. And then our daughter, Sheri, who is a
medical student in AL, has needed help with the 4 children while her
Doug goes to Tampa to do his
Air Force job for a week a month. One of our son's 2 children whom they
adopted from an abusive foster home has had serious problems and it is
more than she can handle by herself. Doesn't leave a lot of home time to
take care of the farm.
Thanks very much, Ruthie!
We love and pray for
From Rick Chandler ('65) of TX - 10/05/15, 12:10 AM:
|Both A and C worked. Not so for
Method B. Thank you.
Thank you, Rick!
OKAY! I'm going to go with Method C - which has the additional advantage of being far, far easier for me!

You Forgot All the Words
Words by Bernie Wayne (06 Mar 1919 - 18 Apr 1993)
Music by E. H. Jay (Eve J. Zeserson)
Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998), 1956
Love was like a song
A lovely melody
Our hearts would sing along
In perfect harmony
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune
Each time our lips would cling
I heard a serenade
Of love and youth and spring
Forever to be played
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune
We used to dance
Instead of walk
We used to sing
Instead of talk
That used to be
Only the start of the blues for me
But songs are funny things
They never really die
And so my hope still clings
That someday you will try
To just remember the words
For I still remember the tune
When lonely lights are lit
And midnight songs will start
Our song I must admit
Still fills my hopeful heart
So please remember the words
For I still remember the tune
