  • “We were going to the prom, and she had on this pretty dress, and that was the night I knew she was the one,” said Paul Morris, the memory of that moment still alive in his eyes as he smiled at his wife, Ethel. 

    Paul Morris celebrated his 80th birthday last week; his wife is 76. Outwardly, they look very different from a photo taken 60 years ago that graces their room at Amber Oaks Assisted Living Community.

    But their love is still as strong as ever.

  • In September 1995 my son Reggie took his mother Susanne, then 80, on a trip to France, including a visit to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, near the border between France and Spain.

    She had first visited the shrine with her father in 1926 when she was eleven. Susanne described her impressions:

    I touched Reggie’s cheek and he touched my cheek. And there was an atmosphere of prayer, no giggling, no laughing or anything. Just a very comfortable place to be because everybody else was doing the same thing. And it was very emotional.

  • During our several trips to France, while we always visited our good friends Jean-Michel and Guillemette Dunoyer de Segonzac in Brittany, we did not neglect beautiful Paris.

    We stayed at small reasonably priced hotels, and dined at inexpensive restaurants frequented by Parisians.

    Such informal trips would have been impossible without the entrée provided by Susanne’s family background, warm personality and capability to shift in mid-sentence between French and English, in easy conversations with patricians and functionaries alike.

  • Cornerstone Christian Academy hosted two Guatemalan exchange students for 10 weeks before Christmas break. Marco Guay, ninth grade, and Ernesto Castellanos, tenth grade, stayed with two of our families and attended classes at Cornerstone during their visit to the United States.
