Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

To find oneself jilted is a blow to one's pride. One must do one's best
to forget it and if one doesn't succeed, at least one must pretend to.”

- Molière
(15 Jan 1622 - 17 Feb 1673)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   This Golden Oldie from 1967 keeps running through my mind.  This will either purge it or solidify it.

BONUS - - Love Is Here and Now You're Gone - The Supremes


"Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" is a 1967 number-one hit single recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label. The second single from the Supremes' album The Supremes Sing Holland–Dozier–Holland, it was written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland.

The song, which depicts a relationship in the beginning stages of breakup ("You persuaded me to love you/And I did/But instead of tenderness/I found heartache instead"), features several spoken sections from lead singer Diana Ross, who delivers her dialogue in a dramatic, emotive voice. Matching the song's drama influences is an instrumental track, featuring a prominent harpsichord and strings, which recalls both a Hollywood film score and The Left Banke's recently popularized "Baroque rock."

Primarily recorded in Los Angeles, California, thousands of miles away from Motown's regular Hitsville U.S.A. recording studio, "Love Is Here, and Now You're Gone" was the #1 song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for one week, from March 4 to March 11, 1967, becoming the group's ninth number-one single. The single was also the group's sixth number one on the R&B charts.[1] The girl group performed the hit record on NBC's The Andy Williams Show on Sunday, January 22, 1967,[2] going to number one two weeks later. Lyricist Eddie Holland names "Love is Here" as his favorite Supremes song.

  From Gary Farnsworth ('58) of NV - 08/21/14, 6:03 PM and 9:03 PM - "Notice of Demise for Gary Farnsworth '58":

Dear Webmistress,

Please correct my obituary notice if possible. A number of individuals thought I was killed in an aircraft accident in Alaska. The aircraft was found and I was airlifted to Anchorage on 26 May 1973. I presently live in Sparks, NV and often recall the good times at NNHS. I am in the process of reading your posts. You do a great service for us and you get my thanks.


   Hey, Gary!  The loud noise you just heard rumbling all the way from NC to NV was the sound of me falling off my chair.....
   I am so very sorry! How horrible it must have been to see yourself listed with the dearly departed where you're been listed for at least the last seven years!  I'm not sure how that information reached me, but I have "returned" you to the Land of the Living - to the great and everlasting joy of all your friends.
   I also updated your information on Famous Marines.
   Am I correct in believing (for lo, these many years) that    Sterling Farnsworth (HHS - '64) is your younger brother?
   ... I'm glad you're enjoying the site. Please share your memories of anything relating to NNHS, the peninsula, or anything at all, and I will be delighted to post it in a Newsletter or anywhere else in the archive.
   Thank you so much for contacting me!


Thanks for your speedy reply!

Sterling was my brother and he passed away here in Sparks, NV over 10 years ago.

After my tour in the Marines I completed the apprentice program at NASA, '66. Then on to CSU in Ft. Collins, CO, '69. Taught HS and Adult Ed in Fairbanks for a few years. Univ. of AK Masters '72 and enjoyed Alaska for 38 years. Hope to be closer soon as I have a portion of grandparents' farm near Roanoke Rapids NC. I still enjoy good health, just slowing down.


OH, Gary! You've replaced my joy with an unspeakable sorrow!   I met your gorgeous brother at Buckroe Beach in June of '63, and was quite taken with him. As I recall his fraternity rented the cottage next to the one my sorority, TDC, had rented for the week. I remember the thrill I had even to be seen in his company - what a tremendous boost to my self esteem! I'm so very sorry to learn of his untimely passing.

   We're glad you're well and survived your harrowing accident, and look forward to hearing from you again soon!

  From Tazewell Whitley (NNHS / Hampton HS - '65) of VA - 08/21/14, 10:42 PM:


Just a note to say THANK YOU for the work that you put in to get the newsletter out each day. I enjoy reading it and seeing what is happening to former classmates. I did not know of this site until my father (    Taz Whitley, Class of February 1939) passed away in 2008. Thank you for posting his obit.

I was Class of '65. Although I graduated from HHS, I attended Magruder Elementary, Walter Reed, and NNHS thru 10th grade, and consider myself a TYPHOON.

Is there a way you could add me to the birthday list? October 08. Currently living in Chester, VA.

Thank you again for all you do,
Tazewell (Taz) Whitley

   Thanks so much for your nice note, Tazewell!

   Had anyone else in the world told me that you graduated from Hampton High, I would have argued the point until Doomsday! NNHS was a big school, but although I remember you more clearly from Magruder, I had no idea you were not with us for our senior year. Frequently people with whom we had been in close association in childhood were not in our classes in high school; therefore our paths simply did not cross. Your being at HHS does explain why I wasn't able to locate your senior portrait in the '65 Anchor, though! 

   But back to our story. I distinctly recall your being in my class one year at Magruder. In fact, I remember your leaning back in your chair near the wall (an activity which practically every boy enjoyed from time to time, and which seemed to drive all the teachers up said wall). My question is, which class (or classes) did we share?

   Here's a listing of my own teachers. Please let me know so I can quit trying to remember. I wouldn't want to overload my circuits.

1st:  Mrs. Hatcher
2nd:  Miss Charlotte Winstead
3rd:  Mrs. Thelma Woodcock Hudgins

4th:  Mrs. Gladys Curry
  Miss Gloria Kratzsch ('53) / Mrs. Gloria Young
   Mrs. Eunice Bassett Leyland (@ '27)

   Evidence would seem to suggest you were not in my first or sixth grade classes, and I'm leaning (much like your chair) to our being in the same fifth grade classroom, but the suspense is driving me bonkers - and I need no help in that area.....

   I've added you to our birthday list, Tazewell; thanks for sharing that with us!

    From Buster Vest ('63) of VA - 08/21/14 - "The Lord's Prayer":
The Lord's Prayer

The moment you receive it, say: 
Our Father who art in heaven,
 hallowed be Thy name, 
Thy kingdom come,
 Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,
for Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, now and forever

it shall be well with you this coming year.
No matter how much your enemies try this year, they will not succeed.
You have been destined to make it and you shall surely achieve all your goals this year.


For the remainder of 2014,
all your agonies will be diverted and victory and
prosperity will be incoming in abundance.
Today, God has confirmed the end of your sufferings, sorrows, and pain,
because HE that sits on the throne has remembered you.
He has taken away the hardships and given you JOY.
He will never let you down.

I knocked at heaven's door this morning.
God asked me, My child! What can I do for you?
And I said,

'Father, please protect and bless the person reading this message.' 
It has never been broken.
Within 48 hours send to family and friends, as many as you can.
God does know if you don't have 20 people to send it to.
It's the effort and intent that counts. This is a powerful Prayer. Couldn't hurt, can only help...
Let's pray for one another;
there's no superstition involved here, we are just asking
for God's will to be done here on earth.

Twenty angels are in your world. Ten of them are sleeping, nine are playing, one is reading this message.
Please read.... not joking.....
God has seen you struggling with something. God says it is over. A blessing is coming your way.
If you believe in God, send this message on, please don't ignore it, you are being tested.
God  is going to fix two BIG things tonight in your favor.
If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on.
will be the best day ever. Send this to ten friends.
As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.
   Thank you, Buster!
We've just shared this message with about 648 of our closest friends!

From - 08/21/14:

At a Catholic school, there was a "meet the teacher" open house for the 2nd graders. After the meeting, a nun announced that there would be a small reception afterwards in the cafeteria. All the children and parents filed in, and saw on a table a plate of apples, a plate of cookies, and some water bottles and juice. As the children went through the line, one boy saw that there was a sign on the plate of apples that said, "Take only one. God is watching."

So, the boy took an apple and moved on to the cookies. He helped himself, and then took a small piece of paper, and wrote: "Take all you want”. God is watching the apples."

Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

Brian Holland (b. 15 Feb 1941), Lamont Dozier (b. 16 June 1941),
Edward Holland, Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1939)

Recorded by The Supremes, 1967

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now, now you're gone

You persuaded me to love you
And I did
But instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead
Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
That was waiting there

You closed the door to your heart
And you turned the key, locked your love away from me

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
And oh, my darling, now you're gone
You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day
But as soon as love
Came into my heart
You turned and you walked, just walked away

You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then took my hope
Look at me now

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin' has left it's trace

After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn't keep

My heart cries out for your touch
But you're not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
