Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This lovely sad song from 2001 (for which I could find no midi file, even if it were still able to be heard on your computer) has been replaying in my mind all week.
Today would have been my daddy's (the late Robert Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960) 109th birthday. I still cry sometimes when I think of him, too. BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4wN0CvCenw - I Still Cry - Ilse DeLange
