I am not as sad as I am grief-stricken.  The loss of a good friend is only superseded by the loss of an immediate family member.  I am gratified to have been able to know Joan.  She was a star in the Heaven of my life.  She was indeed very special in her very own uniquely mercurial way.  We were neighbors growing up in that we only lived about 7 blocks from each other.  We attended Millard Lefler but I just cannot recall if Randolph as well.  It was many conversations with Joan about all the facets of art and the doors she open for me to its diverseness that spurred me into art collecting.  Since the early 80s I have accumulated in the neighborhood of 50 pieces:  Aldo Luongo, Joan Miro, William Buffett, Alexander Calder, Red Skelton, Peter Max, Edward DeWitt, LeRoy Neiman, Pablo Picasso, Bennet Bradbury and others that Joan introduced me to, but sadly I never received the long-promised Tomlinson.  I took some photographs of Joan who also dabbled in fashion one of which she used in The Sheild.  When I was the Business Manager of the Kosmet Klub in my senior year at the University of Nebraska, I solicited the fine arts major and received Joan's expert assistance with the sets of the Fall Revue Show and the spring Broadway production West Side Story.  She was a taskmaster of force wielding her talents over the production crew and was an integral part in making the 1969 spring show the most successful and profitable in the decade-long history of the Klub.   I am grateful for the many memories which will help temper the impact of this stark reality.  "Requiescat in pace" until fate may bring us together again!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STONEY!
First time I've ever flown over to Hawai'i just to help you celebrate your birthday in person. Hey, why not, this is a milestone birthday for you Stoney. It's not every day I have a good buddy celebrating becoming 3/4 of a century old! The big 75th! Welcome to the club, old man, I joined a bit less than two months ago.
I'm on a path to get even with the jerk who said these are the "Golden Years"! The only thing golden in these years of my life is my urine. If I ever get to meet this guy, watch out, I promise I'm going to knee him in the groin as hard as I have ever kneed anyone in the groin!
Now it is on to a century if I can endure the torture that my physical body is inflicting on my mind.
We are going to celebrate in style tonight at your favorite restaurant in town and have a toast of your favorite Drambuie!
Someday hopefully later rather than sooner we are going to attend our last class with the famous Class of '65. And I'm tellin' ya right now that is a class I'm planning on cutting now matter what Mr. Lauterbach does! May God bless you my friend with more health (we both survived major strokes), happiness (you already got this one cause you're married to Julie) and prosperity (you're already three times richer than I am)!!!

This is very sad news.  John handled some business matters in Lincoln for me some years ago.  During that time we had some good converstions.  John was an attorney, not lawyer, if you can caught my underling drift.  It is sad to learn that he has joined the ranks of the Knights who are not longer 'fighting' this thing called life.  Rest well, in a goodly number of years the Class of '65 will be resembled in the paradise you now have found.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY good buddy! Celebrate with a Drambuie (assuming that's still your favorite nectar of the gods) and have a great day and an even grander year ahead!
And if you get island fever and come state side, do let me know when and where.

Rick was a great guy whom I reconnected with through Jim Stone during one of my frequent visits to Las Vegas.  The three of us had a meal or two together during each of my trips to Las Vegas and always never ran out of topics to commiserate about, be it UNL sports, politics, the day's news or "memories of the good old days".  After Jim and his wife moved to Hawaii, Rick offered to be my hotel during my continued Las Vegas visits.  I would travel over every February when I spoke at an annual conference and again in November when I traveled over to renew the license plates on my car.  Rick had a lovely place to stay and was the consummate host.  Rick was a gifted guy who had accomplished a lot of great, interesting things during his 70 years.  He touched a lot of people and during his last years, I was fortunate to be one of them.  It was a pleasure to have been able to reconnected with Rick.  It was a very sad Christmas day to learn he had moved on to be with our Lord.  I am very grateful for the memories he was kind enough to leave behind.  People will remember and miss Rick and I will be one of them.  Here's hoping in the grand plan of things we will rendezvous again someday.
