“So dear I love him, that with him all deaths I could endure, without him live no life.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Hmmm - weird weather, tragic and scary news from all corners, sad song - it all fits.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giKXKNqDaUM&NR=1 - Since I Fell for You - Barbra Streisand
|"Since I Fell for You" is a jazz and pop standard. The blues ballad was composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945 and was first popularized by his sister, Ella Johnson, with Buddy Johnson and His Orchestra. The biggest hit version was recorded by Lenny Welch in 1963, reaching number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.|
1. From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 11/17/16 - " Sylvia (Hall Hammond - '66) has good news!":
Wanted to let classmates know what the scan showed. Mayo said that two of the spots have gotten smaller and the third one they can't even find now. Told me if I didn't have a history of cancer he wouldn't even worry about them but have to be on the cautious side with my history. Anyway I have a 6 month reprieve this time; never gone that long before.
Needless to say we are ecstatic with this report and can breathe a sigh of relief for now and really enjoy the two week cruise. I asked Phillip if he still wanted to marry me again and he said life would have been so boring if it weren't for me. We are leaving for Tampa on Thanksgiving Day to board Holland America the next day.
Bill Crosley ('64) and his wife who live on a boat will be here tomorrow afternoon, and Larry Boyles ('64) and his wife Pat are flying in tomorrow morning and they all will be staying with us for the weekend. At least now we won't be having a pity party for me and Phillip; we can enjoy them.
Thanks, Carol, for all you do,
Phillip and Sylvia
SUPER-DE-DUPER! Thank you so much, Phil and Sylvia! Y'all have some well-deserved fun!
2. From Nancy Winall ('70) of VA - 11/18/16:
|I would like to thank all
of you for the prayers for my son, Dale. He is out of ICU and in a
regular room. Hopefully, he will be discharged in a few days.
Thank you, dear family and friends.
EXCELLENT! Thank you, Nancy! I know you're breathing a big sigh of relief!
Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 11/19/16:
received word that Butch passed away unexpectedly yesterday, which I
believe was the same day that his wife, Ethel, returned home from
the hospital following her successful knee replacement surgery. I have
tried every way I can to pretend that this is all a mistake, but the
harsh reality just keeps intruding. I am completely stunned. Butch has
been one of my subscribers for over 13 years, and was always one of our
biggest supporters in many, many ways. His family, friends, and
classmates have my deepest sympathies.
Happy Birthday tomorrow to
Glenda Stewart Martin Faires ('68) of

|A man took his place in the theater, but his
seat was too far from the stage.
He whispered to the usher, "This is a mystery,
and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat, and I'll
give you a handsome tip."
The usher looked at the quarter, leaned over and whispered, "The wife did it."
