What wonderful news to learn your son got his liver
transplant and is doing well. Prayers that it continues. 
My younger cousin Maryjane Cross ('68-RIP) has a liver
transplant done in the early '80s, the donor was her brother,
Duane Cross '(79), and it made a big difference in her life
and health. And I'm sure they've made several advancements 
in the procedure since then.

So glad to hear it went so quickly and so well.

Re: On a sad note

Sorry to learn that another member of our class has passed, 
Bruce EDWARDS ('62-RIP).

Re: Hurricane Harvey - Louisiana Cajun Navy

Hey they have their own website and Facebook page (with lots
of footage)!
 Louisiana Cajun Navy Facebook Page.

Hurricane Harvey

   Seen on Facebook: Dina Smith (nobody I know): "See what
   happens when you name a hurricane after a man! He won't
   ask directions, wanders around lost, leaves a mess and
   doesn't clean up after himself!"

Re: One a those guys

First lemme say thanks to the Divine Ms HOFF ('64) for
filling me in on Brian JOHNSON's ('65) progress... as I
understand it, Beej received a pacemaker which seems to have
been the cause for his sudden collapse... leading up to his
head injury... I think he is receiving visitors over in the
Pasco Lady of whatever Hospital... Duncan SINCLAIR ('65) paid
him a visit today I think... 

Next, it's that time of year again when I remember one of
those guys none of us will ever forget... "wittiest" was an
understatement and friendliest would have been the same...
Rest In Peace SHELLEY McCOY, we lost you August 31, 2002 and
will never forget!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
