Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know: I still believe that "Home is where the Heart is.” Life is a Journey. During this last year I had some family members and friends pass away: two brothers-in-law, nephew, and my dear frriend Terry Neal. Terry came with me to our 45th reunion. He passed away on August 11, 2103, one year after being diagnosed with cancer. I was blessed by being with him and caring for him during that year. Then of course, my (our) friend Jimmy McGuirt, being treated for cancer during the same time as Terry, then passing away September 24, 2013, about six weeks after Terry.Then the passing of my daughters' daddy, Jan Winn in 2012. "Live each day as if it were your last", and treasure the moments with your loved ones; because, as you see, so many of our family, friends and classmates have gone on before us.
