Greatest classmates, thank you for your e-mails and class news. We are all very sorry for the passing of several classmates, and we thank you for keeping us up to date with the obituaries. * I received the sad news about Ralph “Bill” Bailey, a great gentleman and a great hockey player for Colby. Bill had heart failure and died at his home, with his family present, in Wellesley, Mass., Dec. 31. Good friends John Linscott and Dan Hall saw Bill many times before he scored his last goal. *We also learned that Edward D. Whitney passed away Dec. 29 in Yarmouth Port, Mass. Sorry to give you the bad news first. *We heard from several other classmates who are doing well. Lorraine (Arcese) ’54 and George Wales moved into another home in Granville, Ohio, next to Denison College, where Lorraine works in the arts—music, to be exact. And George still follows her tunes. They see their family on many occasions. * Fred Boyle doesn’t travel as much these days, but he continues his work with genealogy, helping the Maine Mayflower Society. Fred is also a baritone in a singing group that performs at various functions, and he continues to lecture at York County Community College. Sounds like an active, productive lifestyle, and we admire your energy, Fred. * John Linscott finished his most recent play, Love and Lobster. It will be staged in July at a Freeport, Maine, center. I hope John will provide us with a DVD of the play so we can all applaud his talent. Good luck, John! * Audrey Bostwick wrote from West Lea Farm that she enjoys raising and grooming horses and ponies and still judges horse shows on occasion. She recently did an Arabian horse show in Scottsdale, Ariz., and another in upstate New York. *Jane and I spent February in Naples, Fla., and hoped to see Ted Shiro. * Good luck and happy new year to all the ’51ers. Stay healthy, and enjoy the good things in life, like Colby memories. All the best!
