An excellent day weather-wise brought out a lot of classmates to our luncheon Thursday.

   There were classmates there from Upland, Ft. Wayne, Kokomo, Greencastle, Indianapolis, Muncie, Alexandria, Pendleton and Anderson.

    Several of our "Lunch Regulars" couldn't make it due to doctor's appointments, sickness and being out-of-town. 

    Remarkable to see Marabeth LaMacchio there.  She has had a tough time the past couple years dealing with cancer. She had a treatment the morning of our lunch and had her son, Tony, drive her from Upland to see everyone. Now that is determination. 

    Really nice to see Lottie & Don Callahan there. Their son, Don Jr, passed away a couple weeks ago after an extended illness. They are hanging in there. What a blow to lose a child. Sadly, several of our classmates have experienced that. 

    I talked to Marv Whitaker the other day and he said he was going to come, even if he was in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, he is in a rehab center in Muncie and not able to do it.

    Gary Gilmore called me from Ft. Wayne and wanted to come, but unfortunately, he has Parkinson's and his relatives would not let him drive.  Gary comes to all of our events, so this September, Gary may need a ride from someone in the Ft. Wayne area.

    Pat and Tom Roush had plans to fly up from Tennessee, but too many storms down south changed their plans.

    It was really nice to see classmates there that were not in the best of health.
