Sharing part of a message from Janet dated Dec. 21, 2018.

“Connie, we share in common. I’ve had a rough year due to back surgery I had about six months ago and still trying to recoup. However, I continue to press on regardless of any setbacks that may occur. Hope to see you soon. Continue to help keep the class together. Blessing my friend. Janet”

I will always be blessed through Janet’s insight, inner strength, and friendship. I will cherish all the suportive heart-felt things we shared together. I too truly appreciate our class website that gives opportunity to keep in touch. May we all be filled with inner peace, be strong in our faith, and may we all continue to press on regardless. Connie

Thank you Connie for sharing Janet's message to you.  Janet was such a great friend to me in high school.We shared a lot of laughs. I hope and pray that we all stay connected even if it is only on our website. I am thankful for the class breakfasts that keep us together. It is always a joy to see all of you.

Once again, I just now enjoyed reading Tom Collier's post from over 2 years ago. Worth reading once again, so here it is........


Out in my garage I have a couple of “old” bench high wooden stools that I purchased many years ago at an auction. They are are basic, simple round spindled stools - no turning or ornamentation - and I sit on one of them (the other I save for guests) nearly everyday, but the wear and tear has loosened every joint to the point where it wobbles without constantly “tapping” everything back in place. A little simple maintenance is overdue - it’s time to glue all the joints, clamp it and restore it’s solid stance.

We ALL have simple maintenance that we do everyday, particularly around the house - leaking faucets, broken window or screens, replacing a faulty flush/fill valve or "flapper" in a toilet, replacing a broken electrical outlet/switch, do a little touch up painting, patch a wall crack, get an oil change for the car, have the furnace checked and on and on. We do it, not necessarily “gladly”, but because it needs to be done.

Which brings me to the point of this story . . . there are a large number of classmates (and their families) suffering through some form of medical/health problem. We wish ALL of them the best and send prayers for speedy recoveries. A little simple maintenance is in order here, too. A check up with your doctor or dentist can help avoid (or at least postpone) many problems, and could give you an early warning about more concerning issues.

Now I’ve gone and done it, Mary is chuckling - she says I’m good at giving advice, but poor on following it myself. Okay, fine - but this is something we ALL need to do. Visit your doctor, make YOUR health (and the health of those you love) important and please - Be Well.

Thank you Martin for sharing Tom's post. He is right. I would like to add that all of us are at the age where we may end up being caregivers. When you are a caregiver you tend to not take care of your own health. It is very important for caregivers to take care of themselves also. It is very hard to remember that by taking care of your own health you are able to take better care of those you are caring for.

Arlys Kessler (Nilles)

I had planned to be in Newton the weekend of April 13 for the class breakfast, using the excuse that I had to pick up the final tax return for my mother. Now that the class breakfast has been moved to April 6 because Bill Boyd will be in town, l’ll change my plans to be there April 6.  Looking forward to seeing you, Bill, as well as all the rest of you who can make it.

That's great, Arlys, glad you were able to adjust your plans.  Mine aren't so flexible.  Looking forward to seeing you.
