Class Party - April 17, 2010

Thirty-six folks, or thereabouts, gathered for the class party at Mary Futch's beautiful lakeside home.  Most were 1959 classmates and spouses.  However, Donovan (Corky Dean, class of 1957, and his wife Mary attended.  The class has sort of adopted Bill and Bea Johnson.  The Mussos brought Franky Flint, and Lamar Hayes came with Leon Futch.  Enjoy the slideshow.

Linda Launt Huggins Terminal With Parkinson's Disease

In checking on a returned email, I spoke with Linda's husband, Jim.  He tells me that Linda is in a nursing home home for the duration.  She has Parkinson s Disease and is totally disabled.

A Message From Jane Morris Bay - Hospice of Petaluma

Dear Friends,
Long time no email.  Just want you to know I'm alive and well, and to tell you about an event I'm doing on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 in Petaluma, California (visit link).
Hospice of Petaluma has invited me to participate in their Community Education Series, "Food for Your Mind, Body & Spirit" on Wednesday, May 12, 2010.  (See enclosed flyer).  This free program is one of the ways Hospice of Petaluma thanks their community for the incredible support they receive during the year.  I'm donating copies of LOVE & LOSS - A Story About Life, Death, and Rebirth. 
I'll talk about my relationship with Namgyal and the consequences of her life and death on my life.  When Namgyal died, I could never have imagined that I would be able to come to the end of mourning, celebrating the gifts of grief I have received by loving and losing her.  Following my reading excerpts from LOVE & LOSS, there will be an "interactive discussion" with the audience. 
Namgyal is very much alive in my heart and continues to expand my capacity to love and walk the Bodhisattva Path.
If you're in the neighborhood, please come.
With love & gratitude,
