Nice article and fun facts. Not sure what forecast you're looking at, though. Mine says snow TuesdayRead More night!

Spring snow, Arva! The old man's dead. Or so I wish. " (We'll consider Tuesday's chance of snowRead More showers a brief evil side of spring.)"

It may be spring, but there is a chance of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday of next week.

I will miss you my friend, Wendy. I met Wendy when I attended McLean Bible Church. She lovedRead More helping others and was always willing to share what she learned. She was an excellent artist. And, she had a passion for health and nutrition. As my nutrition coach, she insisted that I get rid of the Oreos in my cupboard and replace them with expensive vegan, carob, non-fat, tasteless thingies. I liked that Wendy was down-to-earth, which was very refreshing—especially in a city like Washington , DC. One time we were at the checkout line at Whole Foods reviewing supplements and she asked if I needed one for gas--in front of the cashier! I met her husband, Steve, just after they got married. They both loved ballroom dancing (and were exceptionally good at it). And, Steve was just as kind, gentle and humble as Wendy was. My thoughts and prayers are with Wendy’s family and friends at this time.

We all at Canine Carousel are devastated to hear about Mrs.Cerick:(. She was a wonderful person andRead More a woman that would lite up the store whenever she came to get Tinkerbell. We all are saddened by the news and will miss her tremendously. Our hearts go out to her family and Tinker. If there is anything we can do please let us know.

Lou was indeed a great man. I was the boys lacrosse coach at Herndon HS for 10 years and workedRead More closely with Lou to help grow lacrosse in the community. I have been around the sport of lacrosse for 40 years and have never met anyone that had a greater love of the game. His enthusiasm, energy and positive attitude created the opportunity for thousands of kids to get to know and love the game. He will be dearly missed by the lacrosse community and anyone who got to know him. Our thoughts and prayers go out the Petersen family, Jim Hayden and family

I share Jim's thoughts. And I know, while we mourn his passing, somewhere Lou is sitting around aRead More campfire,or a table in a community center, with ten or fifteen new BFF's he didn't even know a week ago, plotting a new activity or organization to get young people involved in healthy activities. Lou's energy and incurably optimistic outlook overcame every bump in the road (nothing was ever an 'obstacle' to Lou) we ever encountered in the lacrosse program, or any paddling excursion for that matter. Any time I was with Lou, I was around the nice people with positive attitudes that he attracted. Thank you, Lou.

This was lovely. I met Ruth many years ago when I went to Christmas with her son Randy. She was soRead More welcoming to me and made me feel so at home. I enjoyed her company a lot and going out shopping with her. I will always remember Ruth with kindness and love. I feel honered to have been a part of her life for the time I was.

Walter Mess fit the description of an ideal OSS candidate: "a Ph.D. who can win a barRead More fight." He served as an influential member of the Board of Directors of The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) Society (www.osssociety.org), a nonprofit organization the celebrates the historic accomplishments of the World War II predecessor to the C.I.A. and the U.S. Special Operations Command. He will greatly missed and never forgotten.

From the time Pat worked with us on Herndon's downtown planning in the 1980's, Pat would call meRead More every few months to talk about a planning idea he was working on at the time. He was a brilliant thinker and a man of wonderful humor. I will miss calls. - Richard Downer
