You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes
You just might find
You get what you need......




Remember,
as we get older....we become CLASSIC PATRIOTS!


May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
And may you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay forever young.

.......'Forever Young', Bob Dylan




After graduation and spending time together at school, some classmates decided to spend their lives together.

Debbie Harmon(1950-2011) and Bob Cole, Married August 12, 1972
Debbie Kesner and Bob Hedges, Married July 5, 1969
Deyanne Hale and Tom Wright, Married January 1, 1972
Nancy Cascairo and Pete Bradford Zarrillo, Married June 1987
Marsha Rice and Anthony Kirksey, Married Jan. 17, 1969





There's a new world somewhere They call The Promised Land
And I'll be there some day If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you
There is always someone For each of us they say
And you'll be my someone For ever and a day
I could search the whole world over Until my life is through
But I know I'll never find another you
It's a long, long journey So stay by my side
. When I walk through the storm You'll be my guide
If they gave me a fortune My treasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear I don't know what I'll do
For I know I'll never find another you

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Cathryn Blackburn Sylvester


After Truman, I attended Graceland College with Jr. year at the University of Barcelona, Spain. After graduating with BA in Spanish and Sociology with teaching degree, I continued at M.U. on a TA-ship and got my MA in Hispanic Literature. I married and we moved to Seattle for 2 years, then we moved back into the area.
I stayed home with the girls until the youngest entered Kindergarten and then re-entered the teaching field. I taught Spanish in Blue Springs schools for 21 years. I am now retired. I teach basket weaving classes at Missouri Town 1855 and at Powell Gardens.
I married my husband Rob in 1974, and we have a passive solar home on 22 acres. We have 4 grandchildren. Amy has twin girls, Lauren and Lindsey and Jennifer has two boys, Liam, and Callum. My middle daughter, Lori, lives at home with us. She has Rett Syndrome, an extremely severe genetic condition in the Autism spectrum. She is non-verbal and functions like a 2 year old, but is a happy, loving girl.

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?

Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?

Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?

Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?

And we cried.
