SUZANNE REID TABLE OF CONTENTS PEOPLE . . . page 8 STUDENT LIFE . . . page 98 ACTIVITIES . . . page 122 IN MEMORIUM Remember Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more, day by day, You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve; For it the darkness and corruption leave A vestige of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Then that you should remember and be sad. —Christina G. Rossetti. AUGUST 19-20, 1969 Others will come. We’ve had our chance, Now it’s their’s. 4 5 6 Some have already traveled that road; Others see it in their future.
