ANNUAL LAFAYETTE DTD FRATERNITY REUNION


ANNUAL LAFAYETTE DTD FRATERNITY REUNION

The Old DTD Shelter (I think)
This weekend marks the 77th annual Lafayette, DTD, class of whoever shows up fraternity reunion.  These affairs used to be drunken fiascos, but since the 57th reunion they have tamed down a bit.  They now involve maybe a glass of wine or two, and discussions of recent operations and medications.  Still they are always a good time.

This year a dark cloud hangs over head.  Fraternity brother, good friend and occasional golf partner Captain Don will not attend.  He suffered a painful loss last week.  He and his wife will be missed, but they will be in our thoughts.  I get a lump in my throat just thinking of their loss.

Even with the pain and grief I know their family is feeling, Captain Don wants the reunion party to go on and for all to have the usual good time.  He asks that at some time we raise a glass, think of him, say a prayer and have a toast. 

That we will do.

In addition, I am asking my readers who believe in the power of prayer, to ask for divine assistance in getting Don and his family through their grief.
