We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long-ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Ann Love ~
To all classmates that could not attend you should have received your letter, souvenir card, and paper clipping from The Vicksburg Post by now. To all those that attended our 60th Class Reunion, we really had a wonderful time catching up on the last ten years. Hopefully, from now on we can meet each year to support our Vicksburg Catholic School (SFXA/SAHS) Annual Alumni Banquet. Thanks for the memories classmates. I hope to see y'all in 2020!
Dear ClassmatesMay 2019
thinking of you and I’m so sorry you could not make it to our 60th
class reunion.I wanted to send out a
prayer for our SFXA/SAHS Class of 1959.
we thank you for the wonderful times we have had at our reunions.Thank you for our friendships that have
lasted forever. We seldom get to see each other but when we get together it’s
like we were never apart. We feel just as close and connected now than as we
did when we were teenagers. We truly love and care for each other and it is so
great. We realize all of this comes from you. So, thank you, God.
you for taking care of us. Thank you for blessing our families, our children,
grandchildren, and our great-grandchildren. We realize that everything good
comes from you and we thank you, Lord.
classmates are gifted, talented and now retired. We are spread out from
Mississippi to Louisiana, Missouri, Texas, California, and Washington and from
Virginia to Florida. Thank you for blessing our classmates with all these
abilities and the contributions we have made. We know all these good things
come from you. Thank you, Lord!
are saddened because some of our classmates have passed away. Please bless and
comfort their families. Thank you for the time we had with them. Also, for the
classmates who are now having health issues, please bless them and keep us and
our families healthy and safe.
us with your protection. Send strong angels to guard our families. Help us to
trust Jesus Christ, your Son, and bless us with faith to believe you, hope for
the future, and love. Help us to love you and to love others as you love us.
Bless us spiritually so that we are close to you. Bless us in every way and will give you all the glory and thanks.
the older we get the more important getting together becomes. Until then, we
remember our 60th Year Class Reunion. We remember the smiles, the laughter, the
hugs, the music, the stories – we remember it all and give you thanks for
allowing us to grow up together and to be friends. So, bring us all back
together again. And then one day, take us all home to be with you. Please
forgive all our sins and take every one of us to the big reunion you have
planned for us in heaven.
As we celebrate this long Memorial Day weekend with picnics, barbecues, and family gatherings, let us also remember the reason for the holiday — to reverently honor and pay our respects to those who gave their lives serving their country, preserving and protecting the freedoms that we all enjoy today.
Let us also remember with gratitude our servicemen and women who, as I write this, are risking their lives every day to keep America out of harm's way. May God protect them as they protect us, and bless them and their families for the sacrifices they make for us.
Let's take time this weekend, as "one Nation, under God," to proudly fly our flags and bow our heads in gratitude as we remember our fallen heroes.
