MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


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.”

Viet Nam information on Footnote.com

I just received a note from Footnote.com today announcing a feature which allows one to enter the name of a soldier on the Viet Nam Veterans Memorial wall in DC and you can bring up the image of the engraved name. I typed in Jerome Rawlings and up came his name on the wall and quite a bit of information about him, to include a map showing where Kirkwood, listed as his hometown, is located. I then added a photo and caption about him. Check it out at http://www.footnote.com/page/93952852_jerome_rawlings/. Jeff Beardsley of our class was killed in Viet Nam also I thought, but I do not find him on the Wall or on Footnote.com. There IS a Jeffrey Beardsley but he is not our classmate. If you know about our Jeff please let me know! I would like to do more features on our Veterans, so if you have a story to tell, or just when and where you served, we'd like to post it. Please see http://www.khs65.com/ for much more information & pix about Jerome and a bio of another Veteran classmate of ours!
