The sad (bitter-sweet) part of all this searching/planning is remembering the ones who are no longer with us. I think we have lost six (have asked the Alumni Office if they know for sure). The first one we lost, Morris Hughes, was in 1988 to a plane crash. The class set up a scholarship fund in his name. Another was a death to a motor vehicle accident. One to a heart attack. The saddest was a suicide. I always find suicides sad, but especially physician suicides. I always wonder if it was the professional part of their life that "pushed" them over or their personal side or both. I always regret that they were not able to ask for help when they would so willing give it.
I sure hope I can convince most (well even 20-50%) to show up. We only had seven show up at the 20th, but had many more for our 15th. I would love to see them. [photo credit]
