From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 11/06/15, 7:39 AM:
|Requesting prayers for my
husband, Dale (Chestnut - Nakina HS, NC - '54 - of VA), who's
having a catherization for possible blockage in his leg.
YOWZERS! Certainly, Sandi! We're praying for both of you!
Thanks, everyone, for your prayers! Dale was discharged from the hospital today! He's still very sore, not in much pain and has to take it easy for a couple weeks. Our friends that really know him, will realize it's going to be difficult to keep him off the golf course. Plus his blood pressure is under control. Just very glad to be Home, Sweet Home! Love you all!
WHOO-HOO! Great news, Sandi - thanks!

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 11/07/15:
|“The spirit of
gratitude is always pleasant and satisfying because it carries with it a
sense of helpfulness to others; it begets love and friendship, and
engenders divine influence. Gratitude is said to be the memory of the
Joseph F. Smith
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 11/07/15 - "Two Deaths to Report":
|Hello Miss Carol:
Hope this finds you well and having no problems
physically as you recently experienced.
Thanks so much, Fred! I have made the corrections and additions to those Memorial Newsletters. I was saddened to hear about Nancy. I have not been able to find any record of her death anywhere, but I will be adding her to the Memorial page for her class soon.
As for my health, I fear my attempts to downplay everything have led to a serious miscommunication. Whereas I have better days than others, I have osteoarthritis in both knees and both hips. It is degenerative and progressive. That progress doesn't include getting better. The pain is constant, and runs from bad to excruciating. On October 7 I switched from using one cane to two, much like a skier. For reasons I've mentioned several times before, surgery is not an option for me. I really can't complain, as many, many people suffer constant pain far worse than mine, but it is what it is. Thank you for your concern!
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/07/15 - "Sweet Mama Dog":
God don't make mistakes.
Thank you so much, Billy!
From Me ('65) of NC - 11/07/15:
SO VERY, VERY TRUE!
This one, for instance:

I'm expecting out of state company on Wednesday, I have a bazillion things to do, I have zero time and even less energy, and even though I have completed several projects lately, I still have a few Works in Progress, and yet... and yet (yes, I KNOW that's redundant; just humor me here!)... and YET this pattern keeps wafting through my mind, coupled with the taunt, "You EVEN have all the yarn (well, MOST of it, anyway )!"
