Sally Loyd (Sabino)

Warm thoughts and prayers are being sent to you Susie.  Sally

I checked in briefly with Susie last night.  The insurance adjuster looked at the ruin of her home, saying that he had not realized that the damage was so extensive, and that it would have to be assessed by a "major claims" person.  (I'm not sure what he had been thinking!)  Such people are busy elsewhere, of course, given the recent hurricanes, wildfires, and such, so resolution will not come immediately.   Oy!  

Offers of help (by Sally and others) are appreciated, but it's hard to know just what would be useful, right now or later.  Ideas, I'm sure, are welcome.  

Her son was able to take time away from his teaching job to be present at the meeting with the adjuster, which was an excellent idea, I think.  When you're in a post-crisis state, much information can slip by without notice, or be forgotten.  If anyone could be available to be a second set of ears when this sort of business is taking place, or even take notes, I'm sure this would be valuable.  I'm not sure that she needs actual advice, just a way of staying on top of the considerations and details.   

There may be salvage/clean-up to help with, but I'm not sure when that might begin.  

To offer sympathy, support, or any assistance, you can reach Susie directly at 505-710-9532.

Hold the date!  We've finally picked a date for the October birthday lunch -- Monday, October 23!  1 PM, as usual.  A committee is zeroing in on a (Westside) location, and should have a final decision soon.  Many thanks to them!

Susie update:  When we checked in last night, she was continuing to move toward resolution after the fire that has brought such chaos to her life.  She did tell me that she has received phone calls from several classmates; some have provided a much-appreciated ear, while others have offered help of more specific kinds.  She is feeling truly blessed in those of us who have come forward, as well as in those who keep her in our thoughts and prayers.  

I'm reluctant to name names, but I am also touched, and in awe of our class members who have opened their hearts to one of us who is in need.  As Sally has said, we are a special group, with much to offer.  Sometimes all we need is an opportunity to help.  Thank you all!

Has anyone heard from Nancy Olson? She lives in Santa Rosa where all the horrible fires are. I have called her twice but she has not returned my call. I called her land line probably.

Let's hope she is OK.

Any update on Nancy Olson?  Did not realize she lived in Santa Rosa.

Neal, Randy, Steve, and others,

I have NO information about Nancy Olson Davis.  However, I did an online search, hoping to find something from a local source that listed names of those who didn't survive the recent wildfires.  Best I could do was a USA Today story, five days old.  Nancy's name was NOT on the list of 32 who perished.  

What I did find, though, reminded me of a story I had seen recently on the KOB-TV news, about Lynne Anderson Powell.  She had been a flutist with NMSO, then retiring to Santa Rosa.  If she was known to anyone here, I'm sorry to be the bearer of the news of her passing; her husband, George, did survive.  

I hope that the grapevine will soon bring us good news of Nancy's well-being.

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

I also am concerned about Nancy's well being.  Hope we hear some good news soon.  

I will be going to the lunch Monday.

Rhonda Beauchamp (Blech)

George and Lynne decided to take 2 cars in order to get all their pets out. George reported driving through a wall of flames but apparently Lynne couldn't get through and perished.

Rhonda Beauchamp (Blech)

On a happier note, Frosty and I will both be able to come to lunch on Monday. Perhaps someone will have heard from Nancy by then.

Kathi Paton (Murray)

Tracy and I will be at El Brunos for lunch.  

10/19/17 03:23 PM #1171    

Helen Stambaugh (Williams)

I am in Seattle, so won't be at the luncheon.  Have fun.

I will not be able to attend the birthday party at El Bruno's.

Have a good time.

Mary Ann Simanek (Villarreal)

I plan on attending. Where is the restaurant located. I’ve never been there Thanks Mary Ann

10/21/17 10:00 AM #1174    

Robyn (Jane) Cholerton

It will be good to see you, Mary Ann. 

El Bruno's is at 8806 4th St NW.  I'm told it's just north of Paseo; I do know it's on the east side of 4th.  I do hope someone will post better directions here. 

If anyone else needs to check in, please do -- it's almost Monday!


10/22/17 07:18 AM #1175    


Rhonda Beauchamp (Blech)

El Bruno's: from Paseo del Norte take the second Street North exit, turn left on Ortega and left on Fourth. It's on the left.
From Osuna turn north on Fourth Street. It's on the right past the freeway.
