Pat's Posts - February 2018

   I feel saddened by the number of notifications I have had to send out to all of you about the loss of many of our Classmates and their children, spouses, and siblings just over the past year. I suppose that we have to face the reality that we are getting up in age no matter how we might feel and it is that time in people's lives that crappy things begin to happen. Our circle appears to be growing smaller, unfortunately. I really wanted this newsletter to be a very positive way of keeping in touch with each other in between reunions. I believe that the most difficult and heartbreaking task is the notification that our class has lost either another member or spouse, child, or sibling. We have lost 26 of our classmates by my count but not their memories. I do apologize if I have "bummed" everyone out but I felt strongly that my thoughts had to be expressed.

    To end on a positive note, our 55th class reunion will be next year and the Reunion Committee should be meeting shortly to determine a date and venue so that our get together can be guaranteed.

Note:  Please let me know if there are any changes in the information enclosed or if you wish to share anything with your classmates, either in the monthly Pat's Posts or the website, please do not hesitate to drop me a note and I will make sure that it becomes available to our classmates who have an email address or web site access.

Web Site Status

Update is a slower process because of my recent surguries. I had two surguries in May and spent 6 weeks in the hospital which really impacted on my strength and health. I lost 38 pounds while in the hospital. Currently wearing an ostomy bag and have a surgical wound that must heal from the inside/out. Although healing well, it is a long process. In January 2018, I will be returning to the hospital for reversal surgury for 5-10 days.

I will meanwhile work up dates and corrections.
