“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."

Gordon B. Hinckley, October, 1964

“Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time."

    From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 11/25/15, 12:51 PM - "     Donnie Satisky, Class of 1956":

Hi, Carol,

Sorry to be sending bad news, but I got a call from
Franki Satisky ('68 - of OR) yesterday that her brother, Donnie had passed away. As you know from your list, today would have been his birthday. His service will be on Sunday in Newport News. Franki has told me in the past that Donnie enjoyed your newsletter and keeping up with Typhoon news.

On a happier note, hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


   Oh, NO! I am SO sorry to hear this, Sandi!   Donnie's been on my mind all week. From time to time he would send me the sweetest and most entertaining notes. Here's one of my favorites, which appeared in the 12/05/07 Newsletter, RE: "Happy Hanukkah!":


You are an amazing person. I had almost forgotten about tonight being the first night of Chanukah, and then I lit the candles after reading your your web message. My wife is a Danish Lutheran, and we do celebrate all the holidays in our own traditions, with many people of mixed religions, etc.
And now we are reminded by a dedicated LDS of our own faiths. G-d bless you.

I did know Harold Abraham, and his wife Thelma, and her brother Robert. I grew up with Robert in Newport News, and knew the Abraham family quite well, as my Aunt Ida Satisky's father was also an Abraham related to that very family. Harold's father and Ida's father were brothers. They, as I remember, slaughtered beef in the Jewish/Kosher tradition for many generations of Jews on the Peninsula, and I remember them well, as my father was close to Harold, Phillip, and Elliot Abraham and their father. My dad, Aaron Satisky, managed the restaurant, as a franchise, at Nachman's from around 1946 until his death in 1954, at the age of 46.

Many of my classmates NNHS class of 1956 remember my father well. His closest friend was the near immortal   Julie Conn, with whom he grew up in Newport News.

I have attended every reunion of our class, even though I often traveled distances to get there, from Ft. Ord, California when I was a young Infantry officer for the 10th, until last year for our 50th. Twice I got the award as coming the most distance (we live in Lake Oswego, OR). I still think so fondly of my classmates and really like to see them, and many of us are dying off.  G-d willing we will do our reunion again in two more years. Both my sister and I went from Woodrow Wilson School to NNHS, but 11 years apart. What a great memory we both have of growing up in Newport News.   Franki ('68) now lives just a mile from my wife and me here in Oregon, and last night we celebrated her 58th birthday.
Donnie Satisky


   Please pass along my deepest condolences to Franki and her family.

   Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well, Sandi!

Lyrics by Henry Alford (07 Oct 1810 - 12 Jan 1871);

Music by Sir George Job Elvey (29 Mar 1816 - 1893), organist at St. George's Chapel,
Windsor Castle for nearly fifty years, about 1844
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God's own field,
Fruit as praise to God we yield;
Wheat and tares together sown
Unto joy or sorrow grown;
First the blade and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take the harvest home;
From the field shall in that day
All offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store
In the garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
Bring thy final harvest home;
Gather thou thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified,
In thy presence to abide;
Come, with all thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.
