It is with a heavy heart that I report that earlier this morning we lost one of our former classmates, Rebecca Reiher, in an automobile accident. The news is especially difficult for me as she & I have been corresponding for some time now about the reunion. She was kind enough to help me in tracking down missing classmates and she was looking forward to seeing all of you this summer. I trust that you will join me in lifting up her family in prayer at this very difficult time.
I am sorry but I do not have classmates’ mailing addresses but anyone wishing to send their condolences to her family, may email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
