Re: My friend

I am so very sad today. 

I just learned Joan GREEN Wade Harvey ('58wb) passed away
January 26, 2017. 

Last I knew she was living with her daughter, Lori in
Vancouver, WA. I moved to this area almost 5 years ago and had
tried to find her but I didn't know Lori's married name. I had
tried e-mails and phone calls to her family with no response. I
have many great memories of our times together.

Re: April's baby boy

What wonderful news to learn on Easter that April delivered her
baby (calf) safely. As we live with in an hour of Indianapolis,
I hope to go see them.

      [April and her baby are at Animal Adventure
      Park, Harpursville, New York. -Maren]
   
Easter blessings a little late, but we've had a very busy Holy,
but blessed Holy Week.

-Helen CROSS Kirk ('62) ~ Hope, IN  where we had a glorious
      Sunrise service with the sun shining through the clouds
      on a very warm morning, where the little rain we had held
      off til after our outside Easter Egg Hunt, and the 
      predicted storms have missed us.

Re: Easter
 
Very funny! Loved it... had not heard that before so I was very

Re: A Special Day

I have been blessed with some very special friends. None more
special that Craig DAVIS ('65). You couldn't have got a razor
blade between us at Spalding from the day I arrived till the
day I was "invited" to leave. Craig was a friend's friend and
Marine's Marine. I find it strangely amazing that during his
last two illnesses, my special friend Terry DAVIS ('65) made it
a point to be there every time Craig needed him and most times
in between. Though I won't go into it here, I have come to
accept the amazing as a friend as so many such things have
taken place during my life time. I am no longer surprised at
the coincidi (coincidence plural) that occur so often in my
life. In fact I find them quite comforting. When God acts
anonymously, anything can happen. It is with mixed sorrow and
joy that I tell you that my friend Craig passed away early
Easter evening. I will relish the grand times we had together
and never be sad as I know he is out of pain. God Bless Craig
Davis.
