  • News note from Laura (Mentzer) Ramsdell: Bob Mentzer's sister reports that while Bob was in a Wilmington, Delaware hospital, on the operating table for a planned hip replacement, he suffered a heart attack.

Telephone 302 764-1926. (As an aside, Bob had been taking VIOXX for the hip pain!)

  • News note from Marlene (Mickens) Haupricht: Tom (Sparrow) had a multiple bypass on 19 October 2004. He is doing fine, but it was slow going. They had planned to leave on a safari in Kenya but had to cancel.

  • News note from Shirley Macklenar: Jack has been in the hospital since 6/3/04. He is now out of intensive care and showing improvement, but he will need 4-6 weeks in rehab when he is well enough to transfer. They had been hoping to attend the Reunion Dinner, but it will not be possible this year. If you want to drop him a line, their postal address is 27 Fairway, Bradford, PA 16701.
