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.”

MORE INFORMATION - KATHI WICK

I've had a very nice letter from Tim Lapping and want to share it with you all who knew Kathi Wick, our classmate and Tim's first wife and mother of son, TJ. "Leslie, The memorial was very sweet. It was here on our property as per Kathi's request along with our old friend and neighbor Rudy Horst and his wife Zet performing the ministerial duties. (Rudy & Zet married Ginny and me in 1992.) Rudy gave everyone a chance to speak and our granddaughter Cloe read the enclosed poem. It was beautiful! He sang Amazing Grace and we all walked back to the set up area behind the house. Beer, wine, food and more stories of Kathi. Her altar was loaded with past photographs. Many memories for me. I was touched! Her sister Chris, a nephew and niece, and cousin and aunt were here and really added a lot to the memorial. There were forty or fifty people here mostly from Ford. People I hadn't seen in so many years. A wonderful send-off!" Here is the obituary Tim sent along.
If anyone wishes to contact Tim directly, please let me know and I will give you his address, he is stickin' to his guns, no email! BE SURE TO OPEN THE POEM LINK AS THERE IS A PICTURE OF KATHI THERE TOO AND GO TO OLDER POSTS FOR AN EARLIER POST ABOUT KATHI.
