Charles-I agree with you but marriage has been redefined. I think households worked better whenRead More roles were more established. We will not see those days again.

Dan, I also agree with you. The leave it to beaver days worked. God only knows what will happen inRead More the next 30 yrs. My parents were married for 51 yrs when my dad passed. I can't imagine being with my husband that long (joking).

The guy is a complete 100% douchbag. I have dealt with him on numerous occassions. I do feel sorryRead More for his wife. She could have done better!

Why did the school decline to comment on his passing? I think that's rude!

To the friends and family of Michael V. Assaf. I am sorry for your loss, the bible has some veryRead More consoling words at John 5:28,29.Jesus promises that “All those in the memorial tombs will . . . come out. What does that mean for us? Our dead loved ones will be resurrected and live again. The Bible also points to the time when “as the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Cor. 15:26)

Worked with Tony for several years at WJOL, and also helped him land him a job at CrawfordRead More Broadcasting (WYCA) in Hammond. He sang and and played piano at the 25th anniversary renewal of vows of me and my late wife Susan. A great friend who was most talented, and will be sorely missed.
