Sad to hear the 51st reunion has been canceled.  Jan said in his announcement it was canceled due to lack of expected participation, which did not meet the minimum for the venue.  The classmates site said it was canceled due to virus concerns.  Either way, it is disappointing.  Hope all have a great 2022.

I was looking forward to seeing my classmates, but "at our age" I guess we should be a little more cautious.  It will just be that much better when we see each other next time. Right?  Best to all. Lisa

Thank you Jan for going above and beyond in trying to get our reunion off and running...a number of times now actually!  Please know, it is very much appreciated.  Not gonna lie, but it is disappointing we won't be getting together because I do so enjoy seeing everyone and catching up.  Hopefully we can attempt to reschedule again at a later date. All my Best!

Very disappointed about the cancellation. I didn't see anything about a poll. Or maybe these old eyes missed it. Drat either way.

I just wanted to give a big Amen to what Jane said.  All of Jan's effort and time is greatly appreciated.  Sorry things didn't work out.

I will vote a "me, too" on being a bit disappointed about the cancellation. I had plans to come, as well. Next time.  Do trust all will remain healthy so we can gather again. Blessings to all, Joe.

I do so hate to hear the news about the decline in Pat's health. She has had such a hard time of it for so long. I will most certainly be praying for her & Phil.

I just talked with Phil McHaffie this morning. He wanted me to let the class know that Patricia is incoherent and in her final days. Hospice has discontinued fluids and has increased her pain medication. Please keep Phil and Patricia in your thoughts and prayers.

Jane Eblen (Thomas)


Thanks so much for the update on Patricia.  It is so heartbreaking and will continue to keep her and Phil in my prayers for support and comfort.

Lisa McGill (Miller)

I'm sad about Patricia in many ways.  She would often text or send me a personal message to keep me informed about things or people in Shelbyville. She had such a sweet and kind heart. I know she will be missed. I imagine Phil will be lost without her. My prayers go out to him.

Bless her sweet heart, she certainly has earned her reward. I am glad that she will suffer no more, but I will really miss her sweet spirit.

I am so sorry about Pat's passing. She always was so happy and upbeat. She is at peace now. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

I was also sad to hear of Patricia's passing. We were classmates all the way through elementary school at Southside. After high school I never saw her again—but she came to my father's visitation in 2014. We talked and reminisced for some time, and she was still the sweet spirit and kind soul I remembered. Rest in peace, and we are losing too many of us...

Patricia was part of the "Southside Group" so I went to school with her from the first thru 12th. I hadn't seen her since our last reunion, but remember her to be such a kind and nice person. RIP Patricia. Prayers for Phil
