I am still thinking about MJ and her partner. Though I did not know MJ
well, I am deeply saddened by her death, the suddenness of it, and all that
Laurie is trying to grasp. MJ's vivaciousness and joy is what this world
needs more of.
Courtney's skype name is cdonnell626 and her cell, which she always has
close to her, is 312 622-2637. She is best contacted after lunch time.
Courtney truly loves our class and would delight in seeing everyone. I
think we might consider an alternative to everyone gathering in Chicago at
the same time which might be intense, perhaps exhausting for her, and over
quickly. What might be better alternative is for small groups to go to
Chicago, indeed a fabulous city, throughout the year. That way she has
more time to be with everybody and visits to look forward to. At the
least, let her choose.
If we do happen to reunion on campus, we should request a room for us to
gather in that permits skyping. I attended parts of Bob's college reunion
this spring and ran into John Moses. He made mention of the amazing Oxford
class of '63, his words, and returning for the 50th.
