Another coming year as sub/bus driving for the Newton district. I'm supposed to be their 'dire need' backup, but they sure keep me busy. Anyway, I enjoy a little pocket-money that is well abused and used. LOL!
Other than that... can't complain.
Blessing to you all.

Barb,
1. Happy Birthday Lady!
2. Are you coming in July?
3. Bill Boyd is staying with us this time around, I was hoping wife Rhonda was coming with.
But he is coming solo to the reunion. Sure glad he's doing better, been a hard-health year for them both.
4. Barb, I am still having emotional roller-coaster problems about Wes' passing. I don't know how folks can endure such a thing without the Lord in their hearts with Christian brother & sister prayers & support.. Janet
also lost her son just a few months after Wes. We give hugs and encouragement to each other when possible.
5. I will be having a ladies brunch here at the house to make arrangements for the Winery and Legion.... 50 years sounds better than turning 69 in June UGH!
6. Blessings to you and all that you have.
Sending Love and Windy Hugs from Kansas Connie

My Classmate and Friend Betty        

The first time I met Betty was 9th grade gym class at Chisholm.

Betty fell and broke her wrist during a horse vaulting exercise and when I went over to help our friendship started. She always had kind words and a smile for me. In high-school we only had one class together “shop” over in the industrial building. This was the first year offered to girls, but after a smoking and trashcan fire incident in the girl’s bathroom… it was also the last year offered for a long time.

I had not seen Betty for years, but was able to reconnect during our last reunion. Betty had endured and suffered many heart attaches and hospital stays and all too soon her heart problems escalated so that she could no longer travel. However, during her last few hometown visits I enjoyed our short times together. She openly shared her love for Lord, her thoughts about forgiveness, her deepest faith, and her feelings about facing death.

Betty knew her life was on a day-to-day peril but stubbornly kept going taking one day at a time in her stride doing what she could. She had a big tender heart for stray & unwanted cats. She told me that through her own personal experiences she could relate and understand the need to be loved and accepted. So she opened her wallet, her home, and her life to protect and giving hope to the hopeless.

I got a phone call from Betty this summer to bid me a hello and update on her heart condition which was not encouraging. She continued to have a positive and direct attitude about her earthy life coming to a close. However, it was hard to bid each other farewell and giggle about seeing each other again at those pearly gates, but to hang-up and be disconnected was so silent… leaving me alone with my personal thoughts, feelings, and mixed emotions. Life is precious. God does not promise a safe and easy passage, but He does promise a safe landing.  I know that Betty landed softly in the arms of Jesus and it was everything she envisioned it would be.
