Comments

Medical school (UMKC), followed by residency in ophthalmology. Started my own ophthalmology practice in Augusta, Maine. Sailed the Maine coast on 33 ft. yacht; also sailed in British Virgin Islands, Turkey, and Tonga. Sold practice in 1989, traveled in Europe, Turkey, Greece, Tunisia for a year, then throughout the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. Finally settled in Tucson, Az., where I attended University of Az. College of Law. Passed the Az. Bar in 1998, clerked for probate judge, wanted to get involved in health/law policy, but found it very frustrating trying to reason with politicians. So I've retired from both medicine and law and am in the practice of enjoying life---CARPE DIEM. Spend summers in France (3 months) and one month exploring something new---Peru/Machu Picchu, Morocco, Vietnam, Cambodia, trekking in Nepal, India---to escape HOT Tucson summers. I do a lot of hiking, cycling, line-dancing, running, art lectures, concerts, theater, am trying to learn to speak better French and play the piano. Still active in medical and law organizations.

School Story

Marcia Doubleday and I had lots of fun stalking Mr. George Campbell (math teacher). Unfortunately, I was at Sanford & Sons Comedy Club about 25 years after graduation to see Mr. Campbell (who was retired) perform comedy act. After his act, we sat on the steps to talk, and he collapsed--died immediately of aortic aneurysm. no one at the club knew him, but i did. so I went to the hospital with him, called his daughter, Lisa, to tell her the terrible news. It was a horrible experience.

Jay--I am so sorry for your devastating loss. I have lost some very dear people in the past few months. Coincidentally, a few weeks ago I watched on TCM "Splendor in Grass," an old movie which I had never seen. The message of the movie that really struck me were the last lines, which are somewhat comforting in this time of deep sadness:

"That the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind;
In the primal sympathy
Which having been must ever be....."

So life is for the living---and we must keep on going...
My best thoughts are with you,
Sandra
