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.”

LATEST STATUS ON BILL POTTGEN

I am so pleased to report that our beloved classmate Bill Pottgen is recovering amidst the love and care of his family.  Please read daughter Jen's recent Facebook post and be glad Bill has survived and is improving.  Jen has been an angel to communicate with us on FB throughout Bill's ordeal, what a great daughter!

"This Christmas I am more grateful than ever for my dad. It's been a very difficult 4 months since my dad was rushed to the hospital and then suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and pulmonary embolisms. His life, our lives and especially my mom's was flipped upside down. It's been scary and stressful and still full of uncertainty as he works on recovery every day. I'm beyond thankful that he has overcome the odds. That he is here with us and doing better each day. I'm grateful for my mom who takes care of his every need 24/7. And I'm thankful for all of our family and friends who have gone above and beyond with love, encouragement, support and prayers. Thank you for continuing to reach out and pray. Thanks for acknowledging the struggle we've had to endure and pouring out your love and support. Without it - I don't know where we would be. And thanks, Dad, for your fight, your strength and your undying positive attitude. You are my guide and inspiration and I love you so much! Best Christmas gift ever is your life. We are blessed and lucky. 🙏🏻"
