“Forgiveness is powerful spiritual medicine. To extend forgiveness, that
soothing balm, to those who have offended you is to heal. And, more
difficult yet, when the need is there, forgive yourself!”
(10 Sept 1924 - 03 July 2015)
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 07/06/17:
|Thank you, Joan!|
From Bonnie Loughran Marshall (Hampton HS - '65) of MN - 07/04/20, 10:52 PM:
Received your updates today.
I am so sorry your husband is dealing with serious medical issues. I will hold you both in prayer for healing.
I knew of Rollie Hamel, Cutest Boy in the Class of 1966 as 'Barbara's (Hamel Flynn [St. Vincent Central HS - '64]) little brother' from my 2 years at St. Vincent's back in 61-63. May they both rest in peace.
And the Ebb Tide... I believe there was a dance club in Phoebus by that name in the late 60's.
The private fireworks here (MN) have been
getting louder and closer all day. I think they relaxed what can be
privately purchased. Best wishes to you and all our Hampton Roads pals
on this glorious July 4th and always!!
Thank you ever so much, Bonnie! I so appreciate your prayers!
From My Cousin, Jean Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA - 07/05/18:
Thank you, Jean!
what is the Big Magilla with getting this right? We learned all these easy-peasy
rules in third grade if we weren't taught them at home, and if we still
didn't catch on, we've surely had a year or two since then.
More to the point, we're supposed to be mellowing, right? Why, then, is it that the older I get, the nuttsier that infractions of these simple rules make me?? ARGHHH!
From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 07/05/17:
|Thank you, Jerry!|
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/05/16:
