In Memory

John Meinrath

Linda K. Snyder I can't believe John is gone. I have fond memories of Sr. yr and the Rambler station wagon. And the Unitarian LRY group that I was part of along with John & his brother David. I will always remember the 1969 New Year's Eve party at his parents home. Today, I exercise regularily, but I remember John & I talking about "never walk when you can stand still, never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lie down. We were in contact via snail mail in the 80's. He is truly immortal in my heart & mind.
