The other day I was at a support group I go to and the topic was "Forgiveness. What follows are some excerpts from the book we use.
Resentment will do nothing except tear us apart inside. No one ever found serenity through hatred. ........ Hostility keeps us tied to the abuses of the past. ........ We, too, must find within us compassion
Each of us is worthy of love, and each of us is doubly blessed when we are able to dig down past our grievances and resentments, no matter how justified we may fell in harboring them, and find within ourselves the recognition of that part of the other person that is and always will be lovable.
....... if we are truly in pursuit of serenity, of healing, of a sense of inner peace that will help us to deal with and possibly even enjoy whatever life brings, we must improve the way we interact with others. This doesn't mean that we close our eyes to the unacceptable or tolerate the intolerable ..... it simply means that we cultivate the ability to look beneath the surface . By shifting our focus away from the objectionable behavior and looking more deeply, we recognize a part of every human being that remains untouched by disease, the part of each of us that deserves unconditional love and respect regardless of the circumstances. It is equally possible to appreciate this quality in those whom we do not know as it is in someone with whom we hope to spend a lifetime. This is what forgiveness is all about.
We don't forgive the actions another person has chosen, because it was never our job to judge the person for those actions in the first place. ....... we forgive when we acknowledge our common humanity with everyone, even the person we feel the most entitled to condemn. In this spirit, we can even forgive ourselves, no matter what we've don or how guilty or shame-filled we may feel. We, too, deserve love.
Forgiveness is no favor. We do it for no one but ourselves. We simply pay too high a price when we refuse to forgive. Lingering resentments are like acid eating away at us. Rehearsing and re-rehearsing old injuries robes us of all that is precious. Shame never liberated a single spirit. And self-righteousness never softened a heart.
Although we may despise what others have done, if we keep in mind that everything we are now trying to do has the goal of healing us, we are bound to decide that the best thing we can do for ourselves is to forgive

Yes, yes John. Remember, how horny you, Woody Terry and I got in front of God and everybody? My triple-tonging tripped me up, but not you. So sorry to read Clarann Jacob's obituary and Paul Rolly's. wonderful Salt Lake Tribune editorial tribute in today's paper.

Glad you found your calling, Scott. Great story, too! I'm not sure Joe Dow or Kory Barrett (your bandmates in The Rainy Day who have both passed withing the last couple of years) ever forgave you so I'll have to do so on their behalf. It all worked out in the end; you & Dick Cordray (who also left) were replaced by a pretty fair guitarist & vocalist named Dan Holdaway & The Rainy Day changed direction but remained one of the best bands in the City of Salt for some time after your departure. Kory pursued a career in art but Joe managed to play music until his unfortunate (at least to me) demise last year. Best wishes, Scott! Maybe our paths will cross again at some point.

Missed seeing you at the reunion. I also miss running into you at Industrial Supply. It's been a long time. Looks like all is well with you.

Work primarily in the Semiconductor Industry.
Retired, 2014
More detail: Married with 4 children, 12 grandchildren. Trying to keep up with all of them. Graduated from Univ. of Utah, 1972. Worked in semiconductor industry for approximately 35 of 43 working years, photolithography was the basic function. Had stints of teaching (mostly high school students) for a couple of years. Human resource jobs captured about 5 years and finished up back in photolithography before retirement. Church involvement includes a mission to Native American tribes and many ward and some stake assignments. Have been involved with BSA (Boy Scouts of America) for over 50 years, first as a youth, but then as an adult scouter ever since.
It was great to see so many at the reunion and reminisce old and long held friendships. It was such a pleasure to "catch up" on so many lives. Thanks to all of you who shared with me your stories and happenings. It was truly wonderful!
Thanks to the reunion committee who did such a fantastic job. The hours spent from all of you were obviously enormous, but so refreshing and rewarding. I especially appreciated the recognition of our fallen classmates, and the acknowledgement of their contributions to the class and society; and even more importantly those who had given their all in service to our country. Likewise, recognition of those who had also served our country, but by the grace of God, or otherwise, are still with us. My respect for these men and women is of the highest regard.
Health and circumstance permitting, doing it again in another few years seems like a wonderful idea.

Was this fun or what?! It was so good seeing you after 50 years! Dang, you look good! I have so many memories of the fun we used to have. I would hope to see you again or at least keep in touch and not let the years get away from us.

So happy to see you Thursday! What a thrill! Still the sweet guy I remember from way back when. Hope life treats you well my friend. You and DeAnn are in my thoughts and prayers.
