Wherever You Will Go

“... Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee:
for whither thou goest, I will go...”

- Ruth 1:16

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   We'll be using this song on this day every year, primarily because I adore the graphics!

BONUS - - Wherever You Will Go - The Calling - Acoustic, Live in Italy


"Wherever You Will Go" is the title of a song written and recorded by American alternative rock band The Calling. It was released in June 2001 as the first single of their debut album Camino Palmero. It remains their most renowned and their most successful hit, peaking at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topping the Adult Top 40 for 23 weeks, setting a record for that chart behind Santana's hit song "Smooth" (lead singer Alex Band would later collaborate with Santana on an alternate version of that band's song "Why Don't You & I").

Songwriter Aaron Kamin told LAUNCH about the background behind the song. "My cousin passed away, and he and his wife had been married for 50 some-odd years, and I was just putting myself in his shoes. Like, losing somebody after, like, 50 years," Kamin said. He went on to refer to the September 11 attacks that occurred only a few months after the song's release and said that the song has "become more relevant in our lives as the world has changed recently. It's been rekindled even more so for us, I think, right about now..."[1]

    From Evelyn Vretos ('55) of VA - 01/28/13 - "Re:    Butch Ragland ('63 - of CO)":

Hi Carol,

Happy New Year! Was ill for several months - admitted to hospital for a minor procedure, ended up getting a bacterial infection. Thank goodness massive doses of IV antibiotics and oral antibiotics did the trick!

I'm well now, want to send Butch a get well card. Is he still in hospital or do I need to send card to his home address which I don't have. Let me know.

Check in the mail soon - I continue to enjoy your newsletters.

Love, ev

   OH, Evelyn, I'm so sorry to hear that you've been ill, but I'm so glad that you're better now!

    Ann Allen ('65) of NC called me yesterday and asked me the same thing. Butch is supposed to be coming home today; his address is:

Henry Ragland
2504 E. San Miguel
Colorado Springs, CO 8090

   Thank you so much, Ev!

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/28/13 - "    Mr. Wilson":

Is Mr. Wilson still alive?

   Wayne Honey, the simple answer to this is... I don't know.

   Here's what I do know: He was raised in Michigan, graduated from Wayne State University, and served in the Army before coming to NNHS.

   He and his wife had a daughter born on Sunday, June 14, 1964.  One of them was named Barbara, but to save me, I cannot remember which one. 

   He suffered a heart attack three or four months after attending 1964's 40-Year Reunion on     Saturday, October 23, 2004.

   I tried to do some online research, but the results were confusing, disturbing, inconclusive, and the facts did not all mesh.  A smarter mind than mine will have to supply us with the answers.

   "Anyone? Anyone?"

   Thanks, Wayne, Honey!

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/28/13 - "Indian Assimilation: The Mystery of the Tiny Handcuffs, Solved":

This is a sad story. I did not check to see if it is true, but I imagine that it is!

Indian Assimilation: The Mystery of the Tiny Handcuffs, Solved

   YOWZERONI-RINI! I imagine that you're right, Dools! Such unspeakable cruelty is hard to even comprehend... Thank you for sharing this with us, Haul Party!

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/28/13 - "4 husbands":

4 Husbands

The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought...

He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director.

The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

(Wait for it)



She smiled and explained,

"I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

(Oh, just hush-up and send this one on to somebody who needs a laugh.)

     Thanks, Joan!

From - 01/28/13:

For his entire working life, a dedicated and hardworking astrophysicist tried in all earnest to find the existence of other being somewhere in the universe. After 58 years of constant effort, he finally received a response from a planet 30 billion light years away.

“What is your planet like?” groaned the extraterrestrial from the other side of the Galaxy.

“It is 12,756 Kilometers in diameter, is 93,000,000 miles from the nearest star, our sun, has an average temperature of 72 degrees F. We breathe oxygen, live about 75 years, and have both men and women,” answered the physicist.

“Do you get along with the women on your planet?” the extraterrestrial asked slowly.

Puzzled by the question, but not wanting to insult the female physicists near by, he answered, “Why, yes. We get along quite well here.”

The extraterrestrial perked up, “Can we send you ours?”

Wherever You Will Go

- Aaron Kamin
(b. 10 Aug 1977)

Recorded by The Calling, 2001

So lately, I've been wonderin'
Who will be there to take my place
When I'm gone, you'll need love
To light the shadows on your face
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
And between the sand and stone
Could you make it on your own

If I could, then I would
I'll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I'll go wherever you will go

And maybe, I'll find out
The way to make it back someday
To watch you, to guide you
Through the darkest of your days
If a great wave should fall
It would fall upon us all
Well I hope there's someone out there
Who can bring me back to you


Runaway with my heart
Runaway with my hope
Runaway with my love

I know now, just quite how
My life and love might still go on
In your heart and your mind
I'll stay with you for all of time


If I could turn back time
I'll go wherever you will go
If I could make you mine
I'll go wherever you will go
