need not walk by the shores of Galilee or among the Judean hills to walk
where Jesus walked. All of us can walk the path He walked when, with His
words ringing in our ears, His Spirit filling our hearts, and His
teachings guiding our lives, we choose to follow Him as we journey
through mortality. His example lights the way. Said He, 'I am the way,
the truth, and the life.' |

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 12/08/17:
|Thank you, Joan!|
|Carol.........I was shocked to
hear about Melissa. Although I had not seen her in many years she held a
special place in my heart. Growing up in
Stuart Gardens we were
childhood friends and I actually had my first date with her. Don't
remember where we went but my dad drove us and picked us up. Later we
worked together at a local company and once we were at a company meeting
out of town and we talked and laughed about growing up. We stayed up til
2 a.m. She was so much fun. What a wonderful memory I have of her.
P.S. I owe you an answer to a question you asked me last year.
I knew Rose [Woodard Groff - '65)] because my dad and her mom worked together at SupShips and we hung out together during the summer. She was a sweetie!
I was privileged to know both of them.
Thank you so much, Barry!
From Mark Hutcherson ('66) of VA - 12/07/17 - "During labor, the pain is so great that a woman... can almost imagine what a man feels like when he has a cold.":
From Drusilla West Groce ('56) of VA - 12/07/17:
AMEN! Thank you, Drusilla!
Two things are infinite, the universe and human
stupidity, and I am not yet completely sure about the universe.

From My Friend, Tammy, of UT - 12/07/14 - "Daily Christmas Story (#6 in a Series of 24)"
|This year I decided to
share some of my favorite Christmas stories and quotes. It is a
tradition in our family to read a Christmas story every night in
December culminating with the Nativity on the 24th.
Christmas Story Day 6,
Christmas Day In The Morning by Pearl S. Buck
|Christmas Day In The Morning
suddenly and completely. It was four o'clock, the hour at which his
father had always called him to get up and help with the milking.
Strange how the habits of his youth clung to him still! Fifty years ago,
and his father had been dead for thirty years, and yet he waked at four
o'clock in the morning. He had trained himself to turn over and go to
sleep, but this morning it was Christmas, he did not try to sleep.
- Pearl S. Buck
Thank you so very much, Tammy!
