D.A. is the father of '59 classmate Rex Givens and Dee Givens - class '55 - and father-in-law to '59 classmate Babs (Yarmuk) Givens - Dees' wife. Mr. Givens had been ill for some time especially after the passing of his wife some months back. Services will be tomorrow - Wednesday, Dec. 12 - Boulevard Congregational and Christian church (55th and Gore) at 1:00pm. Visitation is scheduled today [Tues] at Whinery-Huddleston Funeral Home, 10:00am - 7:00pm.
Sharon (Slagle) Meyer - class '61 grad - and husband Lt. Col. (ret) Alan, celebrated their 40th anniversary Sunday, Dec. 9. Alan is originally from MN. Major congrats!
I was told that '59 classmate Julie (Ashlock) Weedn's hubby was to have heart bypass yesterday [Mon] in OKC. I know we all join in wishing him well and adding him to prayer 'list'!!!! They live in Duncan. Will let you know if I can get update.
I thought you might be interested in a look at B & B in Medicine Park. I drove out there last Friday. Was a beautiful afternoon....took a look around at everything. Beautiful fall 'color'. If you haven't been to Medicine Park in a while, its changing...for the good! Lots of improvements and projects under way. Permanent residents. It was always a 'neat' place. Even more so now! http://www.stardustinn.com/
For those not living in state, as of Monday, all 77 counties in Oklahoma have been declared in a 'state of emergency'. Ice everywhere, almost half million without power. A few deaths due to weather. Most in the harder hit areas of Tulsa & OKC. However, some in Lawton were without power Monday afternoon including one of my brothers who lives in area of LHS. No power at Tulsa airport on Monday and all flights cancelled there and most at Will Rogers in OKC.Streets were clear in Lawton on Monday but trees, anything outside, coated with ice. Unfortunately, more forecast for this evening and Wednesday before blowing out of state. Supposed to be gone by Thursday. Hope so!!!!Actually, raining straight down this morning, melting the ice, thunder/lightning, but not sure what evening will bring!!!??
