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.

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.”

KHS64 MEMBER RICH MCDONNELL PASSES AWAY

Many members of our class knew Rich McDonnell through his music.  Someone mentioned to me this week that he had died and I just now had time to look up his obituary in the Post.  Here is the link to the obituary.  Some of you may know that his brother is Mayor of Kirkwood these days.  Weren't we fortunate to have so many talented musicians in our midst growing up in Kirkwood in the mid '60s?  Perhaps why our music continues to unite us all these years later.
Another of our time gone too soon.
McDonnell, Richard E. Passed away on Saturday, February 8, 2014. Dear friend and former husband of Cynthia P. McDonnell (nee Platte); loving father of Boyd (Paige), Carter (Kate), and Clayton (Corinne) McDonnell; dear grandfather of Ryan, Maris, and Myles McDonnell; dear brother of Arthur (Barbara) McDonnell, Diane Hadley, Kenneth (Donna) McDonnell, Mary Carole (Jeff Nilles) McDonnell, and the late Holly McDonnell; dear uncle, great-uncle and cousin. Richard was a friend to every person he met, and will be remembered for his love and warm spirit, genuine interest in others, his beaming smile, and largerthan-life presence. He enjoyed a 30-year career with A.G. Edwards, and for the last 15 years, lived his true passion, as founder of the MAXJAZZ record label. To his core, Richard was a lover and champion of jazz and its artists. Services: A memorial gathering will be held from 3-6pm on Thurs., Feb. 13, at Bopp Chapel, 10610 Manchester Rd., in Kirkwood. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in his name to Jazz St. Louis, 3547 Olive St. Ste. 260, St. Louis, MO 63103. www.boppchapel.com - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/stltoday/obituary.aspx?n=richard-e-mcdonnell&pid=169629586&fhid=6378#sthash.Br4EdyPb.dpuf
