   From Carla Fine Cripps ('65) of South Australia - 10/04/13 - "RE: the Death of Your Cousin,       Stuart Atkinson (Warsaw HS - '63) (20 Mar 1945 - 10 Sept 2013)":

Hoping you're finding peace and strength... Thanks for keeping up with the newsletters and website...


   Oh, thank you so much, dear Carla! It's just that     Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and I so adored Stuart! As we were growing up I remember most especially summers and Christmas holidays when we had extended time to visit. He was sooo FUNNY; we were usually flattened by continual howls of delight whenever he was around!

   He loved to be "goofy", as he called it, and had a language of his own. He invented new words and pronunciations for so many many things - "Candanadians" for our neighbors to the north, and "The Be-AT-tles" for our favorite band.

   His nicknames for his relatives were legendary: His mama,   Frances Frix Atkinson (Thomas Jefferson HS - '37) (24 Mar 1920 - 21 Apr 2006), naturally very quickly became "the Mule". His funniest nicknames seemed to have been reserved for his sister,       Jean (Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65 - of VA). I think from the moment of her birth he saw his mission in life was to tease and torment her unmercifully (which I'm sure Eleanor and I enjoyed far more than she did). He seemed to have three or four nicknames for her at any given time.

   One summer I asked him, "Stuart, why do you call Jean 'Spacious'?

   He replied, "Because her head's so spacious and roomy."

   In the summer of 1966 I went up to Richmond to care for my cousin     Jim (Atkinson - John Randolph Tucker HS - '77 - of AZ) during the day while everyone else was occupied with work or school. At his tender age he was already an expert on dinosaurs, and taught me many things about them.

   But in the evenings, Stuart took me to movies. We saw scads of them, including Batman, Namu, the Killer Whale, Fantastic Voyage, A Big Hand for the Little Lady, Seconds, Alvarez Kelly, and what was to become forever ingrained in my family's vocabulary, Island of Terror - as in, "No bones?!?". Such fun times we had!

   But the Lord indeed moves in mysterious ways, and as the pain of Stuart's death was becoming too great for me to bear, He brought news that my sweet chickadees were leaving the Boston area for the warmth and love to be found on Fayetteville! They are arriving earlier than expected - late tonight, in fact - and I'm pretty certain we may experience a bit of a break in the Newsletters!

   Thank you again, Carla!

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 10/03/13 - "Enjoying music poolside... Clever!":

You Forgot All the Words

Words by Bernie Wayne (06 Mar 1919 - 18 Apr 1993)

Music by  E. H. Jay (Eve J. Zeserson)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998), 1956

Love was like a song
A lovely melody
Our hearts would sing along
In perfect harmony
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

Each time our lips would cling
I heard a serenade
Of love and youth and spring
Forever to be played
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

We used to dance
Instead of walk
We used to sing
Instead of talk
That used to be
Only the start of the blues for me

But songs are funny things
They never really die
And so my hope still clings
That someday you will try
To just remember the words
For I still remember the tune

When lonely lights are lit
And midnight songs will start
Our song I must admit
Still fills my hopeful heart
So please remember the words
For I still remember the tune
