ANNOUNCEMENTS

malcolm callway died class of 1958

I am in Victoria and had the opportunity to visit with our classmate, James O'Conner and wife, Cathy.

James is back in DeTar Hospital following surgery related to the on-going staph infection in the knee replaced last November.

The prosthesis has been removed and doctors are still working to clear the infection. Once cleared, he will get a new prosthesis.

James wants you all to know that he is below 200 pounds and as good looking as ever!! (This should let you know that through all this, James still has a good sense of humor!) Please continue prayers and positive thoughts for James and his wife.
