Remembering “Then” During Covid-19

We couldn’t have know when we gathered in June 2019 for our 50th Class Reunion how dramatically our lives would be changed in the coming year. We also could not have comprehended the significance of rekindling friendships that began so long ago.

So – here we are – a bit more than a year after, as some states see the second wave of Covid-19 and others, as expressed by Dr. Anthony Fauci “Still knee-deep in the first wave of Covid-19.”

How are you doing? How are you coping with this new reality? Are you finding creative ways to fill your days? Have your adult children called on you to teach your grandchildren? What about charity work? Have you been instrumental in helping others in some way?  Most importantly, how have you taken care of yourself?

We want to hear from you. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Whatever you’re experiencing, we’re here to listen, share, and offer suggestions if we can. Know that our rekindled friendships offer you solidarity in these turbulent waters.

We are in this together. Stay safe. Be well…

  1. During this time, it has been very difficult to hear every day , we are elderly. We have been taking the precautions that need to be taken. It’s getting a little old after 6 months. I have been very busy making charity quilts for children, hospice patients, Habitat for Humanity,and quilts of Valor for Veterans.
    We have housed and trained a few Foster puppies the last few months. Our adopted rescue dogs help socialize them. I think our pets are going to suffer from separation anxiety when we return to our regular routines. I wonder when that will be? Stay safe, and enjoy special times with your family.

    1. Hi Pat,

      Thanks for letting us know how things are going for you. You certainly are a busy woman. Quilting is not an easy task. You’ll have to share a picture of one or two. We’d love to see them. At any rate, your work of love is definitely going to worthy causes. And the fact that you’ve taken in foster puppies with your own is amazing! I am a foster failure! The last foster I took in was the first foster and after spending half a day with her I called to adopt her. Now I have 3 rescue dogs and 3 rescue cats. That said, I truly understand how busy you are! You are a gem for all you do! God Bless! Stay safe. Be well!

  2. Oh my goodness. God bless all of you. In all my days never was there ever a thought of face masks hanging off rear view mirrors or dangling from the left or right ear. Saw it in other countries (usually for the poor quality of the air). Shortages of foolish product – toilet paper, paper towels and inhumanity/anger towards too many. What have we left for our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, I’m hoping is a way for them to see a better future, wiser, being more informed, more loving and more understanding. I don’t want all this vitriolic rhetoric, but I’m not seeing any of those changes “YET”. Do what your parents did, teach honesty, hard work, caring and sharing – as you all know they were from the Greatest American Generation. So, along with my husband, we give back in our own backyard. He and I are unable to feed the world, house everyone, better educate everyone – we can only start and continue in our area. Our biggest efforts right now are on ‘feeding’ all people, homeless, unemployed, less educated, hard-working, honest, loving, at wit’s end, sick, Christian, non-Christian, atheist, agnostic, spiritual, wiccan, warlock, fun-loving, down-in-the dumps, single, divorced, remarried, LBGTQIA, straight, Democrat, Republicans, Independents and Libertarians (& all other political parties) – All God’s people with a bag or several bags of food accounting for their needs. And it puts smiles on our faces each and every day. I encourage all of you, my classmates, to make room in your hearts to give back (it need not be monetarily), it needs to be from your hearts in many ways of guidance, love and sharing. I know our class, this great class of ’69’ has always had it in their hearts and passionately believed, as we accepted our diplomas, that we were the group who would make a difference. This is our time!
