WE HONOR OUR MOTHERS AND DADS Oh, the comfort—the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, Having neither to weigh thoughts, Nor measure words—but pouring them All right out—just as they are— Chaff and grain together— Certain that a faithful hand will Take them and sift them— Keep what is worth keeping— And with the breath of kindness Blow the rest away. —Dinah M. Craik One of the greatest privileges we enjoy is one of which we are often unconscious, that of having two people who love and help us. When we need it, there is a hand to guide or a shoulder to help carry life s load, but greatest of all is an ever-flowing fountain of inspiration and encouragement. In our parents we have the two people who are most interested in us. It is they who have watched through the years from babyhood to youth, guiding, training, counseling, teaching, helping, and above all, loving. We deeply appreciate their sacrifices, their care, and the fact that they are always standing by. Our gratitude is often unexpressed or awkwardly phrased, but it is ever there. To our Mothers and Dads, for all they’ve done, we, the class of ’47, gratefully dedicate this volume of the Jaguar.
