Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   As there was a bonus Newsletter scheduled for tomorrow anyway, I have shifted all the light, chirpy news over to it.

From Steve Vaughn ('65) of VA - 02/10/05:

... There is also some bad news. Randy Howell (class of 65) passed away this week. The obit was
in the 02/10/05 Daily Press. I know he was diabetic and had lost both his legs. Funeral will be this
Saturday in Hampton.

Hope you enjoy the clip below..... The important message to you (for all your efforts and caring) is that
whenever I hear the words friend or angel you are one of the people that comes to mind.

   What an incredibly sweet thing to say!  Thank you, Steve.  I still haven't been able to force myself to read the
obituaries again except sporadically, so I appreciate your bringing this to my attention.
