Deborah Murray (Sloan)

You are welcome, Ellen.  However, it is you who is the class act!  Chief planner, chief promoter and chief cheerleader for the reunion, and despite the fact that communications were signed "your 55th committee", I have a sneaking suspicion that this was a committee of one, namely you!!  Thank you for hard work and cheerful posts and for making this a really fun event for those of us who attended.  To those of you who did not attend, especially those who live in the greater Cleveland area and have the oportunity to see each other more often and those who gathered in smaller groups on Thursday nigth in lieu of Friday night at Paninni's, we really missed seeing you.  People came from Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and Massachusetts and had such a good time catching up as well as reminiscing and we missed our Ohio friends.  One never knows when we will have a chance to meet again.... Linda Peate, I hope you are recovering well from foot surgery; Barb Manning, I hope you are also recovering from sickness; and Nancy, Westerfield, please continue to stay strong and positive during your chemo.  Sending happy, loving thoughts to all.

My heart aches to let our classmates know that I got a call from Sally Willey Johnson's husband today, and she is very ill.  She is on Hospice and will be going home on Wednesday.  It's been a long road for Sally, but she has been strong and positive throughout her illness.....please pray for her and her family.

Sadly, Sally Willey Johnson lost her battle and passed away yesterday......happy many of us got to see her at a couple mini reunions and the 50th Reunion.  Rest in peace, Sally.  Lin and I have some wonderful memories!

Sally enjoyed the minis and it was reported that she would have been at the 55th had she been able. She enjoyed celebrating with her friends and classmates. She will be missed!

Yesterday was a long and difficult day.  Sally's service was in St. Clairsville and Barb and I drove down from Col.  Her family is just so nice.  She has 3 children and she married Rick 33 yrs. ago, and he had 2 sons.  They said she was the best stepmother ever.  She will be missed, and yet the family came to acccept that this is what Sally wanted as she was tired, and tired of all the pills and hospital stays.  She had some sort of blood disease, and yet she wouldn't survive the stem cell transplant, her son said.  So what was the point to live that way?  Shared her early yrs. Barb and I had with Sally as grade school friends, took the yr. books from RR, plus a pic of our double wedding where Sally was in the pic.  The family enjoyed it tremendously!  Rest quietly in knowing we will see you again, Sally.

Please keep Nancy (Westerfield) Depew in your spiritual practice today as she undergoes 8 hours of pancreatic surgery.  And please continue keeping her in your thoughts, prayers, meditations.

Barbara Peate (Sabo)

To follow up with Ellen's post, Nancy's surgery ended up to be 10-12 hours.  I don't have a full report of how it all went but will let you know when I hear further.  She really needs all our prayers right now as she begins her recovery.

Having worked with 3, 4, and 5-year-olds for many years in a variety of situations, I relate to this a lot.  Nothing cuter than kids being kids.  Enjoy!

Many years ago my church youth choir (the director of which was yours truly) sang this Gather song for Epiphany.  Singing about galoshes and puddles, it was a bit livelier than this version.  I hope you can discern the words as it's a fun song.
