Weekly Reader

Is the Fall term nearly over already? I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun taking OLLI classes, field trips and participating in other activities!


Each one of us has a unique backstory. But even when we think we know someone, we can be totally surprised.

This is certainly true of three OLLI members who have recently passed: Eb Werner, Alice Frost, and Janet Rogers. The comment I kept hearing over and over was “I never knew that about them.”

An obituary can only hint at an individual’s life experiences, but can remind us how grateful we are that the person was in our life. And, hopefully, appreciate those still around us all the more.
