Summer is flying by. School ended, I taught my course on the CT River the last two weeks in May, flew out to Macalester College in MN and drove back with a used SEM, went to the annual Council on Undergraduate Research conference, and then off to Italy for 3 weeks work, mostly in Pisa writing a couple papers. Gypsy, oldest granddaughter at 25, linked up with me and we visited Pam and Arnaud on Giglio. I’m off to a reunion at Wavus this weekend, and then my siblings arrive the second week in August as we prepare for Dad’s memorial service the next weekend. Sandy is sending out the following announcement to those who have RSVP’d, but if for some reason you want to come to the memorial and haven’t let us know, send me a note or just show up.
“We are looking forward to seeing you at the memorial service for our father, Harold “Westy” Westerman. The service will be at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 18th at the Orono United Methodist Church in Orono, Maine (36 Oak Street). There will be an opportunity during the service for family and friends to say a few words about Dad if they wish. Following the service, there will be a reception downstairs in the church Fellowship Hall. We are glad you will be able to attend this celebration of Dad’s life.”
Just wanted to let you know that my sister Ellen and I will be attending the memorial for Uncle Westy. We are looking forward to seeing you and your family and friends of Wavus!!
See you then – all the best, John
I’ve emailed Sandy that my wife Holly and I will be attending the memorial service next weekend. Please let Gary know as well as he and I have corresponded. Looking forward to seeing you all to honor one of my heroes.
