We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Parent of Classmate death

Here is another death in the KHS65 community, that of the father of Bob (KHS65) and Rick Buckles. They were Robinsonites and you fellows active in Scouts I think will remember them. Rick might have been in KHS69, somewhere around then. They lived in that wonderful house set up on the hill on the north side of Big Bend overlooking the countryside down the hill and out toward what is now I 44.
