Hey Carol,

Wanted to let you know that Lawrence Diamond, 89, passed away two weeks ago. He was the owner of Diamond Pharmacy and a graduate of NNHS. You can do the math to figure out what year it was. His obit appeared in the Daily Press On Sunday, Sept. 8th. Hope you're doing better.

Ivan Anker

   Thank you, Ivan.  I read this, but did not realize he was a graduate of Newport News High School.  You have my condolences on the loss of your friend.

From - 09/20/12:

A young girl came home from a date looking sad. She told her mother, “Charles proposed to me a few minutes ago.”

“Then why are you so sad?” her mother asked.

“Because he also mentioned he was an atheist. Mom, he doesn’t believe there’s hell!”

Her mother replied, “Marry him anyway. Between the two of us, we’ll show him how wrong he is.”

Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree

Written by Irwin Levine (23 Mar 1938 - 21 Jan 1997) and L. Russell Brown (b. 29 June 1940)

Recorded by Dawn featuring Tony Orlando, 1973

I'm coming home I've done my time,
Now I've got to know what is and isn't mine,
If you receive my letter tellin' you I'd soon be free,
Then you'll know just what to do, if you still want me, if you still want me.

Tie a yellow ribbon `round the ole oak tree,
It's been three long years, do ya still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon ,round the ole oak tree,
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me
If I don't see a ribbon `round the ole oak tree.

Bus driver, please look for me `cause I couldn't bear to see what I might see,
I'm really still in prison, and my love, she holds the key,
Simple yellow ribbon's what I need to set me free.
I wrote and told her please tie a yellow ribbon `round the ole oak tree,

It's been three long years, do ya still want me?
If I don't see a ribbon `round the ole oak tree,
I'll stay on the bus, forget about us, put the blame on me,
If I don't see a ribbon `round the ole oak tree.

Now the whole damn bus is cheering and I can't believe I see
A hundred yellow ribbons `round the ole oak tree.
