“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to
grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This lovely sad song from 2001 (for which I could find no midi file) has been replaying in my mind all week.
Today would have been my daddy's (the late Robert Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960) 107th birthday. I still cry sometimes when I think of him, too.

From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 10/18/14 - "Typhoon SOS":
Bob (Norris - '62 - of VA) has
fallen off of the recipient list for your wonderful
newsletters. Could he be
placed back on the list please?
Umm. ah, certainly! Thank you, Malcolm!
This is what is known in strictly scientific terms as "SAY, WHAT?!?" For you see, Bob was never actually on my mailing list!
One year ago this very month, he fell blessedly and silently into my email account "as the dew from heaven distilling," but did not ask to be added to my mailing list. I then assumed he was one of the scores of alumni and others who have bookmarked that page, and prefer just to read the Newsletters each day (or at their leisure) without being annoyed by my daily announcements clogging their inboxes (as many more of y'all clearly prefer).
In one form or another Bob's been seen on our pages for several years. As his birthday was one of only five or six I could actually remember from The Olden Days of yore, Bobby's name was one of the first to appear on our Birthday Page when it was added to the site on 07/21/04, and we've been celebrating his birthday together every February 19 since then.
I've added Bob's name to the Alumni Page for the Class of 1962, and the Contact Page for his class as well, though his email addy will be kept private unless he gives me specific permission to post it.
Welcome (officially) aboard, Bobby!
