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.”

THE DART passes away at 91

Mr. Smith, aka The Dart to us KHS folks, passed away 2/19 at age 91.  Thanks to Pat Corpening Hoag for the heads up about the obituary in today's Kirkwood Webster Times.  You can see the Obituary here.  Several of us were privileged to spend an evening with Mr. Smith not too many years ago, courtesy of Ken and Darleen McBride who had him and some of us to their beautiful Chesterfield home.  We had a great time chatting with him and reminiscing.  I love to tell the story of my manning (or is that personing?) the KHS Alumni Assn check-in table at Greentree one year, with our large poster of one of our Yearbook pix of him blown up and mounted, hanging from a nearby tree limb.  Boy was I ever surprised when he walked up to the table and asked if the poster belonged to me; I said well no, not really, it belongs to the class of 1965...he thought it was great and a bit surprised that we'd remember him all those years later and even bring along his photo.  

The visitation is Weds 3/1 4 to 7pm at Bopp, with Memorial Service on 3/2 at 11:00am at Webster Groves Christian Church.  I'm thinking his family would love to see many of us who grew up, behave ourselves, and didn't forget him.
