Please feel welcome to comment or offer prayers, Lancers. October 25, 2020.


Classmates, friends, we've moved into Fall and the holiday season, and the hardships and disasters continue. Many Lancers have been affected by fires, lighting storms, hurricanes, floods and probably COVID-19, although I know of no ‘60s Lancer cases except Jackson Browne, who recovered quickly. Other difficulties have affected us, too, as always. 

It's time again for us to come together in prayer and in hope for all our families and Sunny Hills High School classmates. Some of you believe in the power of prayer, some do not, and some aren't sure.  That doesn't matter in the way we all belong to a special family that began in Fullerton as long as 76 years ago, and even longer with some of our parents. We are all connected in many ways, and Time cannot alter that.  

Please keep the welfare and well being of all of us in your hearts and minds. We’ve been going through a long, difficult, dark night, but I knew dawn will come eventually.

You are all invited to leave prayers, hopes or comments as you please. Thank you and God bless you all. -- Paul Saevig, ‘67

Lancers, we need to resume and continue our prayers for each other. The 1960s SHHS classes include probably 4,000 or more people, and it’s to be expected that many will be seriously ill at our age, That does not lessen the shock and pain of learning that an old friend is so ill.

For those in that kind of situation, and for their families, we offer our loving support and pray for the best possible outcome, Amen,

l wish to thank all the prayers for my Brother Jeff(66). He went to be with the lord Nov 19, 2018. He is not in pain any longer but with God as it should be. As an lifelong answer to prayer, he gave his life to Him about a year ago.
He passed away peacefully in his sleep after a great evening spent with his two sons, David & Michael, their wives and his 3(way cool)Grandsons. His wife Lauri of 45yrs was as supportive as always and was the rock. I was soo fortunate to spend a week with him earlier in November, hanging out with lifetime friends, Ron Danly 67, Gary Laurence and Bob Morgan 66 were there to.
At the service Dennis Turner, Glenn Bianchi, Cynthia Byrum and Ron Danly(67)and over 200 others paid their respects for Jeff. Jennifer Buck(Schulze)68' and myself participated with communion.
As a tribute to my Brother and best friend l wish to thank you for your support.
l was also reminded that Jeff also received the Bronze Star for bravery during his 'Nam' service.
Love you HEAP, see you soon

It's not fair, John. It's just not. Jeff served our country bravely. He should be enjoying life and his family. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers

Thank you for this opportunity. Big brother Jeff (66) is not doing well. After cancer attacking his kidney, numerous treatments, it has now spread to his back and thigh. This man has endured, two tours in Nam, decorated, two Purples, back in 69, raised a great family. DAMN, its just not fair. I Pray for a miracle, that God would somehow heal his body, AMEN

Everybody, I’ve been shocked by the high temperatures today in so many areas of the US, too. Usually the hottest days of the year come in August and September.

At times like this, I always think of certain people, and I invite you to pray for them, They are the shut-ins, the elderly, the sick and the poor, and sometimes the mentally ill, unable to afford air conditioning or fans. These people and others may also live in old houses that are difficult to keep cool, especially in the big cities. Or that may live in isolation, far from the nearest neighbors or towns. They also include the hundreds of thousand of homeless.

We can also add all those with respiratory and other physical problems that make the heat difficult to withstand. Every year thousands of these people die, maybe tens of thousands. The police, paramedics and fire departments simply can’t reach and help them all. It’s terrible to suffer in those conditions, and obviously unspeakable to die in them. The victims are often children, and of course, pets.

Is it fair to add, “There but for the Grace of God go I?” I think so.

Some of us may disapprove of some of these people, or blame them for their own distress. During disastrous times, however, please see them with compassion and kindness.

Please join me in prayer or hold onto a kind, loving thought, everybody. Thanks.

I learned today that a ’60s classmate’s dear mother has recently suffered a painful accident. This news always shocks and hurts those of us who have seen our own parents decline.

Lord, please minimize the pain and discomfort this lady feels. Please remove her fear and anxiety -- that virtually all older people feel.

We know you have a Providence for every human being, Lord, and they are not something we know. But we trust this dear lady is in your hands. Thank you.

Oh, and as usual, we all pray for those Lancers who are nearing the end of their time here on Earth. I wish there were a more cheerful, bright way to say it. Please be with them, Lord.

Friends, now we’re well into another cycle of catastrophic weather for many parts of the nation, including the Northeast and Eastern Seaboard, and our own Calfornia shores and fire-devastated areas where the earth is bare and scorched, with rain coming.

May I ask you to pray or keep in mind all those Lancers and families in affected areas, please? They need our moral and spiritual support.

This week I pray for all those affected by the fires up and down California. I pray for their horses and other pets, too. At least one ‘60s Lancer lives in one fire area.

I pray for the firefighters, the emergency service people, the police, hospital workers, doctors, nurses, crisis counselors, and all those working to defeat this disaster and bring comfort to the afflicted. Thank you, and amen.

Will definitely be saying prayers for your friends Paul.Right now we're on our knees quite often praying for my mother in law who is very ill.Miracles can happen but you must ask for them and pray that they will come true.

Absolutely. May God help them all.

Two of my best friends -- one with esophageal cancer, and the other with intractable pain from several sources. Lord, please grant them strength and see them through their ordeals.

For all our parents and family members, too, and for all Lancers in need. Amen.
