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.

Anthony Victor Mann, Deceased, Brother of Tee Mann

From Tee's FaceBook page.

We are the issue of Justine and Isham Mann, pictured here on a happier day. From left, Anthony Victor, Tarpley Blair and Timothy Isham. Last night Tim and I lost our brother to interstitial lung disease. He came to visit for Thanksgiving, developed shortness of breath, was hospitalized and remained in ICU until he died. In addition to his siblings he is survived by three nieces, a nephew, and six great nieces and nephews and his girlfriend of ten years, Joy Sawyer. Life events alter one's perspective. Basically, all I need is the air that I breathe. And, to love.

O God our Father, Creator of all the living,
we entrust to Your gentle care
all those we love who have gone before us;
and have gone to their rest in the hope of rising again. . . .

Eternal rest, grant unto Anthony Victor Mann, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
