“It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think this rainy weather has finally put me into a bit of a melancholy mood. Sigh....

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WFfAqzIw5A - Have You Ever Been Lonely? - Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves
"Have You Ever Been Lonely?" is a popular song with music by Peter De Rose and lyrics by Billy Hill (writing under the name of George Brown), published in 1932. It has been recorded by many singers, becoming a standard.
Ted Lewis and Ray Noble with vocalist Al Bowlly  had successful records in 1933. A small cover war emerged between Jaye P. Morgan and Karen Chandler in 1955. The song was a pop chart entry by the Caravelles, a British girl group, in 1964. An electronically edited duet featuring Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline, who never recorded together while alive, became a top 10 country-western hit in the early 1980s.

|I am doing very well. No
pain, except when I yawn. I see the surgeon tomorrow and will learn the
results of the testing. Hopefully everything will still be benign... I
really appreciate your prayers... It means a lot to me that I still have
people who care in my life. :)
Dearest Charis, anyone who has ever been privileged to know you or to hear your magnificent music or to have been taught by you cares deeply for you! You remain in our prayers!
