Unfortunately, I lost my wife of 54 years, Mary Lee, last September 1. I miss her a lot. She was a talented artist and wonderful wife. I’m here in Essex Meadows, a CCRC, and there are a number of Deerfield men here. Had dinner last night with Harris Parsons, ’44 and Chick Williams ’37. Malcolm MacGruer’s sister is here at Essex Meadows, and he stops by often. I see Tip Atkeson ’53 and Mike Ryland ’53 frequently, and had lunch with Dick Miller ’48 not so long ago. Also run into Dave Preston ’51 from time to time. Classmate Steve Percy ’48 recently stepped down as chairman of the Southeastern Connecticut Committee on Foreign Relations, having served six years with distinction (a committee on which I serve as a director).
