Sharon, I tested the hyperlink several times after I posted the message and it worked.  I tested it from the posting a couple of minutes ago and it again worked.  Perhaps there is a problem with your browser.  I think that you could copy the hyperlink, then paste into and open from the address bar of your browser. Alternatively, you could go to the website (www.cameo.com), search for Bobby Rush, then open the video identified as BP (he has about 4 videos).  These are my best suggestions.

Bill:  I got off my I-phone and went to my PC and I was able to click on your linke and open the Birthday greeting to you. It was really cool. I'm sure you were thrilled that your son sent this personalized video birthday greeting to you. Very original and thoughtful. Again, Happy Birthday Bill and I'm sure you had a wonderful day.

LET'S PRAY THAT COVID-19 IS PAST HISTORY VERY SOON.  I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR 60TH REUNION.  I HAVE SOME HEALTH ISSUES TO OVERCOME IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS BUT AM GOING FORWARD THINKING IT IS ALL GOING TO WORK OUT.

I HAVE MANY REASONS TO GET ON A PLANE.  ONE FOR THE REUNION NEXT YEAR AND THE OTHER TO FLY TO GEORGIA TO MEET MY FIRST GREAT GRANDSON WHO WAS BORN JULY 20, 2020.

COVID-19 CAUSED THE CANCELLATION OF ALL THE SEMINARS I HAVE DONE FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS.  THE EXTENDED TAX FILING DEADLINE TO JULY 15, 2020 HAS KEPT ME BUSY BUT ONCE THE OCTOBER 15, 2020 EXTENSION DEADLINE HAS COME AND GONE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO DO WITH MY TIME.  I LOVED PRESENTING AND TRAVELING AND ALREADY MISS NOT DOING SEMINARS. WEBINARS HAVE TAKEN OVER BUT THEY ARE NOT THE SAME AS LIVE ONES.

I HOPE EVERYONE IS WEATHERING THE PANDEMIC AND EITHER SHELTERING IN PLACE OR AT LEAST WEARING FACE MASKS.  I OWN AN ESSENTIAL BUSINESS SO MY OFFICE HAS BEEN OPERATING FULLTIME BUT WORK IS STARTING TO SLOW DOWN.  I SHOULD BE IN LAS VEGAS, DALLAS, NORTHERN CA, RENO, SEATTLE.DOING SEMINARS.  I NORMALLY DID 8-10 SEMINARS DURING THE SUMMER AND WEEKLY STARTING NOVEMBER THRU JANUARY.WITH TIME OFF TO FLY TO HAWAII FOR CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY.  I AM HOPING HAWAII OPENS BACK UP IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS THIS YEAR.

GOD HAS A WAY AND I GUESS HE WANTED ME TO SLOW DOWN.  I HAVE A VASCULAR PROBLEM IN MY LEGS, MAKING IT DIFFICULT TO WALK.  I HAVE SPENT THE PAST YEAR USING WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANCE IN THE AIRPORT.  THAT IS A VERY HUMBLING EXPERIENCE.  I HAD TWO SURGERIES IN 2019 ON MY LEGS.  A CANE HAS BECOME PART OF MY DAILY WARDROBE.

PRAY FOR A VACCINE!

Bill and I wanted to post on theClass Message Forum, for those class members who don't live in the Fort Madison area, that Jack Eaves, husband of our classmate and friend, Kay Marsh Eaves, passed away earlier this week in Grinnell, Iowa.  Kay and Jack had moved  there a few months ago from Fort Madison, as one of their sons lived there and he and his wife were helping care for Jack and Kay.  We had a closeness to Kay and Jack when they were first married and rented Bill's grandparents little house on the alley behind their home on the 2100 block of Avenue E.  Bill's grandparents loved them like family and Kay and Jack reciprocated.  I also loved to stop and chat with Kay when we visited and she worked all those years at "Jack's/Shop-Ko"...........such a warm and friendly smile for everyone.  Anyway, Jack's service is being taken care of through King/Lynk in Fort Madison and his obituary was in the Evening Democrat this week, if you might want to read it.  Jack left a wonderful legacy in helping develop young men in the area at his boxing club and was recongnized by many for his work with those youths.  With sincere sympathy to Kay and their sons/wives, grandsons/wives, and great-grandchildren, who they adored !

With deepest sympathy to my dear friend, Kay (Marsh) Eaves and family in the loss of her husband, Jack. Kay and I met in 2nd grade when our Dads worked for the Santa Fe and at that time we lived in Missouri.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.  God bless!
