I want to thank each of you who wrote a response to my comment about my surprise (even to myself) that I will be able attend our 50th Reunion. That was very kind and very appreciated - each comment! We are planning on driving from the airport direct to the Friday Meet and Greet, but our plane doesn't land until 6 pm and unfortunately the weather in our area is calling for storms Friday so we may be delayed. But we will get there at some point! So looking forward to seeing each of you and sorry that some folks like Jim White, Jim Burnett, and Thomas Albert have recently sent their Regrets will not be able to make it! You will each be missed!

I cannot believe it but after all that has happened to prevent me from coming to the Reunion, I am going to make it and with my spouse too! I am very happy and excited to get to see everyone. We have to miss the AHS Tour because of when our plane arrives but will come right to the Friday Night Meet and Greet. Just a recap of why I thought I could not come: "I agreed 2 years ago with Connie Crenshaw to initiate the formation of a 50th Reunion Committee for our 1966 Class, but I told Connie I'd only do it if I could get a strong co-chairman to work with me. I asked Paul Cale and he was most gracious and enthusiastic. Well good thing I asked and he said yes because before our first meeting I got the horrible news that my oldest son has brain cancer and I had to back way down in involvement and never got to a single meeting. I moved to be near him and help both as a mother/grandmothe and has his speech therapist when after neurosurgery it was as if he'd had a stroke! Things seemed to be settling into an okay groove. Then I had to have emergency surgery in January, 2016 and was healing from that when my husband had a heart attack in May and is locked into a Cardiac Rehab Schedule (Mon-Wed-Fri) through the end of the summer. But I was hoping to attend, albeit alone, and trying to talk my AFS Sister, Silvia Bruno de Soriano, into coming with me when I had one more post-op surgery appointment and found that the problem that I had surgery for had reoccured and an infection had developed and that I would have to have surgery in August. BUT more bad news has turned to to be good news and when I went for my pre-op appointment, the surgeon found the infection has not cleared and he wants to postpone surgery and reluctantly cleared me to travel. My husband the pled his case at Cardiac Rehab to get off on Friday so we could fly down and back for the Reunion. I also anxious to see all again! Fondly, Martha Doff
