Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

"Alfred, Lord Tennyson is considered the most representative poet of the Victorian Age in England, and many of his works characterize the conflict between the Christian faith and the beginnings of the scientific revolution. The death of his sister's fiancé, Arthur Henry Hallam, at the age of 22 plunged Tennyson into profound shock and a lifelong struggle between faith and doubt. "Ring Out, Wild Bells," generally considered a New Year's hymn, is taken from the 106th Canto of In Memoriam, Tennyson's monumental elegy to Hallam that was published in 1850, the same year that he was appointed Poet Laureate."
From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 12/29/10 - "Prayer
I know you had a
great Christmas... as I did. Would you put me on the prayer roll? I am
having surgery tomorrow due to multiple episodes of diverticulitis..
ugh. Surgery will be at Mary Immaculate Hospital. I have never had
surgery... so this is a bit scary for me. I should be better especially
if the less invasive surgery is done through 4 small holes verses the
bigger incision... ugh. I will be ringing in the new year... in pain...
Thanks.. and Happy New Year!

2. From My Friend, Evelyn Griffis (Mars Hill HS, PA - '75), of NY - 12/27/10 (but just found) - "Help":
I am asking for your help
for my husband. For the last 6-7 months the doctors have been trying to
get him into the hospital. He is malnourished and they can help the
physical or mental aspects of why. For a man who is 5' 7" tall, he is
only 123 lbs. the last time he went to the doctors. I am afraid if he
doesn't go in I might lose him.
YIKESARONI! Certainly, Ladies!
Congratulations on your ever-growing family, Cheryl!
