Our Friend John Kuykendall


I received the following email from Jimmy Heston yesterday evening and wanted to share it with you:
It is with a heavy heart I'm writing to inform you that John Kuykendall went to be with The Lord this afternoon.

John has been ill for many years and we were blessed that we were able to see him at our 50th class reunion. Colleen Clayton has been with John in hospitals in Hot Springs and in Little Rock, Arkansas since January taking care of him with the help of their dear friends in Hot Springs Village, Boyd and Barbara Geisleman and Jim and Avia McGlotchgan. John's son and one of his sisters were also there with him before he passed away.
Thanks so much to Jimmy for sharing this sad news and also for including this picture of John and Colleen at an overlook in Hot Springs Village in October, 2013.

RIP John

Lunch at the Guenther House

Jacque & Judy
looking at the group photo taken at the reunion

Yesterday, Jacqueline Rotan Thornton, Judy Porter Smith, Patty Peairs Miller, Shirley Moore May and myself met for lunch at the Guenther House. Several of us hadn't been able to attend the reunion and it was the first time we had seen each other in more than 50 years.

Guenther House Gathering

It was a lovely lunch and pleasant visit, something we're going to try to do more often in the years to come.

Keep Checking the Pictures Pages!

Don't forget to keep checking the page "More 2013 Photos". As more classmates forward their photos taken at our reunion, I will be adding them to that page.

Yesterday Sybil Adams Holveck forwarded photos that her husband had taken with his cell phone during the reunion which I have now added to that page. Several others have mentioned sending their pictures and I'll also add them there when they do.
