Timeless Souls Plucked from the Spring of Our Days


­čĺ× ­čĺ× ­čĺ×

A high school friend recently asked me to write something for our upcoming reunion. I struggled for weeks. Then, I thought about the plans being made to honor those┬áclassmates who’d left our world far too soon.┬áSeveral of these losses occurred while we were still teenagers. The impact on our young minds was profound.

As I began writing, however, I realized this wasn’t just for the Class of ’84. This was for┬áevery┬ácourageous spirit who has endured unimaginable tragedy and found the strength to move forward, anchoring families, friendships, and communities with awe-inspiring perseverance.

I dedicate this to you with Love and Admiration.
