Look at all the birthdays coming up!  Let's celebrate them while we still can!  Drop them a note on their birthday (right from this website).

And let us never forget the words of the immortal philospher Satchel Paige:  "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"

(.....and for you 'folkies' - Emmylou Harris turned 72 in April!  See, we're not that old whatever you may think!)


And on the other hand, let us remember....

Lynn L. Johnson, 73, of 224 S. Meadow St., Watertown, passed away March 20, 2019 at the Samaritan Medical Center, surrounded by his loving family.

OK, for those of us with failing eyesight - here's a bigger version for you to identify who's who!

Still looking for information on the recent passing of Jeanette Arras (Ladley).  If you have any information (dates, where they lived, family, donations) please pass them along and I will post. It's always nice to let family know that we are aware and share a note of condolance..... and of course share your stories about each one on this website!
