Am I Losing You?

“We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower
that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense
unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every
language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Jim Reeves keeps singing this song to me, so I might as well use it as our Newsletter theme today.

  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/13/14 - "Veterans Day":

I'm sorry that this great tribute to our Veterans is late getting to you but, it is well worth your time to listen and look at what it has been presented.  To GOD be the Glory.

Veterans Day

I wanted to get this out before Veterans Day so it could be passed around. It's emotional to watch, but it is what it is.

A very moving video. This one is special. If this does not tear at your heart nothing will. Put aside the day's clutter, take a moment... Absolutely one of the best tributes to our military that I've ever seen.

Simply awesome...

http://worriersanonymous.org/Share/Mansions.htm

     There's never a wrong day for a presentation of this importance! Thank you so much, Billy!


          From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 11/14/15:

  So it begins...

   AW... Thanks, Brent - but I'm with the elf on this one!

 
 


    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 11/14/14 - "Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers":

Enjoy!

Forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance took a classical approach to the flash mob as they flash waltzed Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem.

Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.

The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day, an annual event that originated in Israel in 2007 and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide.
On this day volunteers reach out to the less fortunate and the vulnerable.

The Academy students enjoyed the day so much that they have decided to schedule regular concerts at the hospital. Hadassah Medical Organization treats over one million patients annually, without regard to race, religion or national origin.

Absolutely Beautiful!!!

Am I Losing You?

Written by Jim Reeves (20 Aug 1923 – 31 July 1964), 1981


Am I losing you
Are my fears coming true
How I wish I knew
Am I losing you

Is your love really true
Is there somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you

Am I too blind to see
What's been happ'ning to me
Ev'ry road has a bend
Will I be sweetheart or friend

Will the sweet things you do
Be for somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you

Am I too blind to see
What's been happ'ning to me
Ev'ry road has a bend
Will I be sweetheart or friend

Will the sweet things you do
Be for somebody new
Tell me what to do
Am I losing you
