Bob Anderson and Sally are staying inside most of the time, praying for family, neighbors, and friends. Occasionally, they take a walk, smell the fresh air, and hold tight to happy memories of Colby. * Diane Chamberlin Starcher, who had to forego her season tickets for the Sarasota Opera and Symphony Orchestra because of the virus, is still able to take walks, sit by the pool, read a good book, and enjoy frequent visits from her sons. * Lindon Christie and his companion are well, and they easily make the weekly trip between their mountain home in Rumford and the family farm in Brooklin. Lindon flew a private plane for an hour in February, and he hoped to do the same in April. * Karl and Merrillyn Healey Decker are both dealing with predictable pathologies and adventures that come with being in their late 80s. Merrillyn still runs her book club and global issues study group, while Karl awaits the publication of his novel, which is “probably sitting at a publisher in Vermont, likely being used as a doorstop.” With two of their three children living nearby, they have decided to stay in their home of 60 years until “they have to scrape us off the floor.” Karl often wonders what Professor Birschneider would say of The Donald. * Tom Hunt sends his best wishes and thanks to all of his 1954 classmates. * Vic Scalise continues to keep busy by attending worship and leading the discussions that follow; by being stimulated mentally by the books he reads and his book club activities; by exercising several hours each week at home and at the local pool; and by taking in as many Mariner baseball games as he can. This summer will again find him at his Ocean Park, Maine, cottage. * Ned Shenton finds his new digs in Falmouth, Maine, “small but adequate. (I have a great view from the third floor.)” He cut way back on his belongings, and he has an 18-year-old cat as a roommate. “I have yet to find myself in the obit column when I check each morning, am able to remain upright most of the time, am looking forward to a new golf season, and I relish each day that comes my way. I do hope you all have read President Greene’s recent letter—it’s a good read.” * The following items are gleaned from an email from Vic Scalise that reports on phone conversations he had with various classmates: David and Carole Bullock Adams feel prepared for the current virus challenge by their years as missionaries in Bolivia. * Robert Anderson was very impressed by the most recent letter from President Greene about Colby. * Following his mother’s passing, Arthur Cummings’s son is now living with his dad. * Christine Henderson Harper describes her retirement center in Ontario, Canada, as “like living in a fancy hotel.” * Virginia Kane Hawrylycz has found meaning in reading and knitting. * Sue (Miller ’56) and Tom Hunt feel that their sparsely populated area of Maine has, thus far, saved them from the harshness of the coronavirus. * Marlene Hurd Jabar reports that ice cream helps Tony get through some of the difficult moments. * Susan Johnson indicates that her belief in God gave us the gift of freedom, which we must use responsibly, helps her through the tough times. * John Krussell states that Florida (in the low 90s) is “hot enough to roast a turkey.” * Mary Pilon Obery reads a lot and gets out for a walk to break the boredom of living in a senior community. * Jim Rapaport hopes to get back to his summer place in Rockport, Maine, this summer. * Sherman Saperstein hopes to return to his home in Chestnut Hill, Mass., by summer. * Helen Cross Stabler expressed concern for the least among us who are struggling to survive without a job or money. * Diane Chamberlin Starcher believes the virus may be a blessing for our environment and our outrageous materialism. “The skies are clear and the air clean.” * Dave and Betsy Powley Wallingford had just moved from their home in Sudbury, Mass., to a new condo in the same community. * Carol Dyer Wauters has found joy in classical and jazz music, as well as virtual visits to museums.
