In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

News from Bob Bailey About Tornado

Thanks Jinny

We are okay and our house is okay. Lots of limbs etc but we missed severe damage. Houses on both sides had BIG trees down and house of a friend around the corner hit hard. Our son’s place in the country has severe damage but standing okay. Lots of damage otherwise. Tornado tracked edge of town so downtown and most residential was spared from tornado but not high winds. We got electricity back but it will be down for a while for those in the track. We do not have gas due to a gas line valve in path of tornado being shut down---so, no hot water, but that is minor. 4 or 5 died in Yazoo City / County. Total dead as of now is 10 including two other counties.

Please pray for those in most need and pass this along to others in ’58 Class.

Thanks again and have a good Lord’s Day.
Bob and Amanda
