|All Souls’ Day is a day of alms giving and prayers for the dead. The
intent is for the living to assist those in purgatory. Many western
churches annually observe All Souls’ Day on November 2 and many eastern
churches celebrate it prior to Lent and the day before Pentecost.
What do people do?
... All Souls’ Day is not a nationwide public holiday but is observed
in some Christian churches in countries such as Australia, Canada, the
United Kingdom and the United States.

From Shermie Wiehe of NE (Washington HS, KS - '70) - 10/24/13 (but only just discovered) - " The late Herb Hice":
Under Herb Hice of your website, the link to his information has changed. He’s passed away now and was a good friend. I still keep his page posted but I wanted to contact you so that you have the update link so you can update your site:
Old link: http://www.wiehes.com/vets/vets001.html
New link: http://www.shermiewiehe.com/vets/vets001.html
Thank you so much for preserving Herbie's records - and for letting me know, Shermie! Even now I still think of darling Herbie practically every day; I so loved that man - and I never even met him.
I've changed that link as it appears in various places in our archive:
From Stacy Dorn Davis ('64) of CA - 11/01/13 - "WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED":
|WHY MEN ARE NEVER
Men Are Just Happier People Because . . . .
What do you expect from such simple creatures?
Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack...
You can never be pregnant.
You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
Wedding dress: $5000. Tux rental: $100.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
If someone forgets to invite you,
He or she can still be your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
Everything on your face stays its original color.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, even decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24th in 25 minutes.
If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Bubba and Wildman.
When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.
None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash,
answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A married man should forget his mistakes.
There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

http://www.allfreecasserolerecipes.com/Dessert-Casserole-Recipes/Pumpkin-Poke-Cake/ - Ashton's Pumpkin Poke Cake - "Jello poke cake recipes are more exciting than regular cakes. You poke holes on the top and then pour a pudding mixture over it, so it seeps into the holes. This Pumpkin Poke Cake is a spin on Jello poke cakes. Instead of pudding, sweetened condensed milk is poured into the holy cake, which is made from yellow cake mix and pumpkin puree. As if that wasn't good enough, the cake is topped with Cool Whip, Heath bits, and caramel. It really is a perfect fall treat."

- Johannes Brahms, 1865-8
III. Herr, lehre doch mich
Herr, lehre doch mich,
daß ein Ende mit mir haben muß.
und mein Leben ein Ziel hat,
und ich davon muß.
Siehe, meine Tage sind
einer Hand breit vor Dir,
und mein Leben ist wie nichts vor Dir.
Ach wie gar nichts sind alle Menschen,
die doch so sicher leben.
Sie gehen daher wie ein Schemen
und machen ihnen viel vergebliche Unruhe;
sie sammeln und wissen nicht,
wer es kriegen wird.
Nun Herr, wes soll ich mich trösten?
Ich hoffe auf Dich.
(Psalm 39, 5-8)
Der Gerechten Seelen sind in Gottes Hand
und keine Qual rühret sie an.
(Weisheit Salomos 3, 1)
III. Lord, make me to know mine end
Lord, make me to know mine end,
and the measure of my days,
what it is:
that I may know how frail I am.
Behold, thou hast made my days
as an handbreadth;
and mine age is as nothing before thee....
(Wisdom of Solomon 3:1)
