09/09/08 - NNHS Newsletter - She Cried

“A mighty pain to love it is,
And 'tis a pain that pain to miss;
But of all pains, the greatest pain
It is to love, but love in vain.”

Abraham Cowley , From Anacreon, vii. Gold.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This Newsletter theme is being repeated from exactly three years ago today:

BONUS - - She Cried - Jay and the Americans


  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 09/09/08:


Please add    Sandi Williams Patrick (class of 64) to the prayer list.  Sandi has given her permission, as she says she needs all the prayers she can get.  Sandi has kidney cancer (one kidney).  The good news is it has not spread.  Her kidney will be removed hopefully next month.  The physician has stated she won't need chemo-great news. 
Please ask for prayer for her during her agonizing wait and during her recovery. 

   Oh, no, I'm so sorry to hear this, Cookie! Thanks for letting us know! I've added sweet Sandi to the Prayer Roll, and am adding my own prayers to the hundreds of others being offered in her behalf:

   Thank you, Harry, that's great news! Very soon now I shall build you a Reunion Page. Meanwhile, I just posted this on our main page:

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 09/08/08 - "Mother ~ we all have or have had one of these, that's for sure! If we...":

This one is a real rain maker.  Make sure you have time to read it, a box of tissues ('cause you're gonna cry) and a gallon of water to drink so you can re-hydrate your body.  This brought back so many memories of my Mom, all good ones!! 

Please be sure to share this, it is beautiful!


This is a truly BEAUTIFUL piece. Please read this at a slow pace, digesting every word and in not hurry....this is a treasure...

For those lucky to still be blessed with your mom,
 this is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, this is  even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this.  

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. 'Is this the long way?' she asked.  And the guide said: 'Yes, and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning.'

But the young mother was happy, and she would not
 believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, and gathered flowers for them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and the sun shone on them, and the young mother cried, 'Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.'

Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was
 dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said, 'Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.'   

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and
 the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children,' A little patience and we are there.' So the children climbed, and when they reached the top  they said, 'Mother, we would not have done it without you.' 

And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up at the stars and said, 'This is a better day than the last, for my
children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage.  Today, I've given them strength.'

And the next day came strange clouds which darkened
  the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped  and stumbled, and the mother said: 'Look up. Lift your eyes to the light.'
And the children looked and saw above the clouds
 an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, 'This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God.' 

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and
 the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide.
  Mother said, 'I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end  is better than the beginning, for my children can  walk alone, and their children after them.'

And the children said, 'You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.'
And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates
 closed after her.  
And they said: 'We cannot see her
 but she is with us still. A mother like ours is more than a memory.  She is a living presence.......' 

Your mother is always with you.... She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your mother lives inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you.
Not time, not space... not even death!

If you still have Her near, then Cherish Her! For once she's gone, there's no going back!

If she has passed, then never forget her, not even for a second!
For when you have passed, she will be the first waiting for you, after Jesus has welcomed you home!


  Pass it on to the men...because they have mothers, too.

   Thanks so much, Joyce! Funny how life was just plain better when my mama was only a phone call away.....

    From Richard Dawes (NNHS / HHS - '62) of VA - 09/08/08 - "Republican National Convention":

Hi there,

It feels good to be home from the convention.

This past week has been very exciting and tiring, too much food and drink and not enough sleep. Each day started with a Va. state delegation breakfast, with speakers. Some days we also had luncheons with speakers.  All speakers were big name: either political, news or entertainers. Some of the big heads were:

Political: (past Virginia governor) Jim Gilmore, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling, attorney general Bob McDonald, US House of Representatives Eric Cantor and Thelma Drake, US Senators John Warner and George Allen. Not to mention, so many Va. State representatives.  One morning we had Chris Farley’s brother, Kevin Farley and Jon Voight speak. Kevin is playing Michael Moore in the movie, ”An American Carol”

(Funny Guy) Jon Voight was also good. Jon started late and apologized, looking like a little boy because he said he overslept. We were given the opportunity to see the movie last Sunday night but it does not open until October. 

We had lunch at the Calhoun Beach Club, which I think was originally a hotel built in the 20s? Pat Boone was our Speaker. We auctioned off a pair of his “White Bucks” that he wore to the event and signed. They went for a thousand dollars and the money was sent to Gustav relief.

Tuesday night after the convention some of us went to a Mike Huckabee party at the Spin Nightclub where the head liner was Josh Turner, now a big country star. After he played two sets Mike Huckabee came on stage and auctioned off three guitars, signed by Josh, Mike and Jeff Cook, a founding member of the group, Alabama . The three guitars brought twenty two thousand dollars for Hurricane Gustav relief.

Pat Boone Jim Martin, Richard Dawes, and Pat Boone     New Kent, VA Group

I have attached a couple of pictures out of the two hundred or so that I took.

This last is of the New Kent Va. Group. The other two are of me showing my signs.

I have been told by many that they saw them on all of the networks.

The second picture is of Pat Boone and myself and standing behind us is the founder of 60plus, Jim Martin


   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI!!! What a fabulous experience you must have had - and what great memories for years to come! Thanks so much for sharing them with us, Dicky!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '69) of VA - 09/08/08 - "LUNCH WITH GOD":

An oldie, but I think it is worth sending again from time to time.

   I do love this one! Thanks, Norris!

       From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 09/08/08 - "Metallica - The Lord of the Unforgiven III":

Soes I really like Metallica’s new album, and particularly “The Unforgiven III.”  I was trying to think of what movie or shows I could use for a video, and came up with several ideas including using LOTR with a focus on Gollum.  I asked      Joshua (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '95 - of IL) over MSN what he thought, and he suggested just focusing on the ring itself and how it affected people.  I liked that idea a lot, and ran with it.

Anyway, here is the video I really like the opening sequence.  Once it gets to the lyrics, all bets are off, hehe.

   Oh, WOWZERS!!! I love the way you edited the music with the film - what an awesome job! It's also a poignant reminder of how deeply our choices affect our lives. You rock, Faniel!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 09/08/08 - "Rain On The Windshield"

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.  This is a must read e mail letter.

   This is so beautiful! Thanks again, Joyce!

She Cried

- G. Richards / T. Daryll

(Jay and the Americans)

And when I told her
I didn't love her anymore
She cried (she cried)
And when I told her
Her kisses were not like before
She cried (she cried)
I thought that our romance was over and done
But to her it had just begun

And when I told her
Another girl had caught my eye
She cried (she cried)
And when I kissed her
A kiss that only meant goodbye
She cried (she cried)

------ strings ------

(sha-la-la-la sha-la-la)

And when I told her
I didn't love her anymore
She cried (she cried)
