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.”

Classmates losing their parents, a sad time in our lives

Cindy Lapides lost her mom, at age 92, on 3/19.  Sherry Soutar has lost her dad, see below for his obituary and Myrtle Walker, Tom's mom, has passed away too.  We send our condolences to our classmates who are grieving, and hope their many happy memories carry them through the sadness the loss of our loved ones brings.

Soutar, Robert Charles died Saturday, March 12, 2016.

Beloved husband of the late Dorothy L. Soutar (nee Heck); loving father of Sharon (Mark) Cherry; dear grandfather of Kristin Cherry; great-grandfather of Kai and Maia.

Bob attended St. Michael’s School. After graduating from Webster Groves High School in 1942, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He transferred to the Army Air Corps and trained as an aerial gunner. He was sent to Italy, where he served with the 99th Bomb Group as tail gunner on a B-17. He flew 26 missions over the mountains to attack the Balkans, Rhineland, northern Apennines and Po valley. He was awarded the Air Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters for his service.

After the war, Bob returned home and married Dorothy Heck, his high school sweetheart. Sharon was born in 1947. Bob and Dot were married until she passed in 2002.

Bob joined his father and brother as a mechanic at the family business, Soutar Motors in Webster Groves. The business moved to Old Orchard when 1-44 took their property. He owned and operated this business until he retired in 1990.
