Thank you to Karen Lowe Adams for alerting me to the recent death of classmate Linda Scheffing. I had not been in touch with her for some time, but at one time we did correspond, although she never, to my recollection, attended any of our reunion activities. She lived in Kirkwood and was friends with my late sister-in-law who was the secretary for many years to the then Kirkwood Schools Superintendent, somehow I think that was their connection. At any rate, here is Linda's obituary from the Kirkwood Webster Times:
Sharon Purdy recently reminded me that we are in the last quarter of our lives. Some days it seems worse than others. So much badness in the world and our friends and relatives leaving us, and like Linda, so many way too soon. I suppose the melancholy is worse now because of the time of year. This is the fourth death in my realm I have learned about just today. Stay healthy everyone!
