The Arch will begin receiving some new surroundings. A lid will be built over the I 70 depressed lanes so that one can walk uninterrupted from the Old Courthouse to the Arch grounds. This project, funded by MoDOT and a grant, probably some federal funds too, is promised to be finished by the 50th anniversary, which all of us know only too well will occur in 2015.
The Beach Boys are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a tour, CDs, a movie and lots of fun appearances. That's another mind-boggler to me. Although I must say Brian Wilson has not fared so well as many of the men in our class!!!! However, his sound is still great. They'll have a tour in April. Ninth grade was a good time for us as a group I think, I'd love to hear some of YOUR 50 year old memories - would you want to be 14 again? I'm not sure I really really know that answer for myself. Of course, YES jumps right out, but maybe not, it's a crazy and often stupid world out there 50 years later!

Dear Family & Friends-
I hope that this email finds all of you well and that you are enjoying the time before the holidays. A number of you have reached out to me and my family and I apologize if I have not been able to respond to you but know that your kindness and love has been appreciated. It’s been awhile since I last updated you on my health so I would like to take this opportunity to do so.
My awesome doctors & nurses have helped me beat the pneumonia and whatever other infections were troubling me. Unfortunately, the tumor in my lung is growing at a very rapid pace and my body is too weak to start chemotherapy or any other cancer treatment. With the help of my children, we have made the difficult decision to come home and work with a wonderful hospice organization that will help us manage this process. Although the prognosis is dire, I am uplifted by my faith, my family and my friends.
Please feel free to contact Tracie or Eric (contact information below) if you would like additional information. I am having difficulty speaking so the best way to contact me is through email or my children; I may not be able to respond but I will make sure to read your message. I know that God is with me in this journey and there are great things in store. Until we meet again, I love you all. -Pam
