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.”

Another Veteran and KHS65 father enters into rest - Barry Romine's father

Also from the Webster Kirkwood Times comes the news of the passing of classmate Barry Romine's father.  Again, we send our sincere condolences to Barry and family in this sad time.

Romine, Ralph E., a longtime resident of Kirkwood, Mo., was born April 4, 1919, in Rolla, Mo., to Walter and Florence (nee Goodacre) Romine, and entered into rest Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015, at his residence in Fenton, Mo., at the age of 96 years, 7 months and 7 days.

He was preceded in death by his parents and five siblings, George, Dorothea, Helen, Norma and Jack.

He is survived by his wife of 72 years, Bernice A. (nee Schaefer) Romine; three children, Barry R. (Mary Catherine) Romine, Barbara J. (Tom Patterson) Romine and Betty J. (James) Williams; four grandchildren, Bradley Ralph (Jana) Romine, Brett Ryan Romine, Melissa J. (Phillip) Lloyd and Lindsey J. (Justin) Graves; seven great-grandchildren, Eliana, Rafe, Lilly, Amy, McKenzie, Harper and Sadie; three siblings, Robert, Patricia and William, as well as many other cousins and dear friends.

Ralph was a decorated World War II veteran and dedicated family man. He was a well-known home builder in the St. Louis area. He is fondly remembered and will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Visitation was held Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015, from 9 a.m. until the service time at 10 a.m., at Chapel Hill Mortuary, 10301 Big Bend Road, Kirkwood. Interment at St. James Cemetery in St. James, Mo.
