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.

God full of mercy who dwells on high

Grant perfect rest on the wings of Your Divine Presence

among the holy and the pure

who shine in the brightness of the firmament

to the soul of Frances Weinstein Davidson

who has gone to her eternal rest

as all her family and friends

pray for the elevation of her soul.

Her resting place shall be in the Garden of Eden.

Therefore, the Master of mercy will care for her

under the protection of His wings for all time

And bind her soul in the bond of everlasting life.

God is her inheritance and she will rest in peace

and let us say Amen.
