Hans Zimmermann,
12/15/98: I was sorry to read about Franzi Whitty passingaway. She was one of our teachers in Isla Margarita, teaching history andliterature with a special touch. She was much more relaxed than the other teachers and less pedantic. She had a wonderful sense of humor and had theability to laugh at herself, I knew that she was highly educated and was anAustrian Jew. She must have been very athletic as a young person because oncein a while she let her hair down and played tag with us kids. She could run likethe wind. I last saw her in the early 90s in New Meadow Run after over 30 years.We embraced and hugged each other, which I would not have done with just anyB'hof women. We were genuinely happy to see each other.Sorry to read about Buddug Evans passing away. Gwyn and Buddug were aintegral part of Primavera when there. It is sickening to read about how the B'hof treats the older members when they refuse to toe the line. Congratulations toBelinda on her 90s birthday. Wishing you many more! My mother also, just hadher 90th birthday and is doing quite well. Froeliche Weihnact und ein guter Rutsch ins Neue Jahr von Hans und Bettina,
Dave Ostrom,
12/11/98: To all Hummers sending good vibes and prayers. Your thoughts, prayers and beams have been in part answered. As the EP[Electrophysiology] Cardiologist told me after surgery, "You now have your own portable E-R implanted in your chest!" I now carry an AICD pacer in my chest.Short history: in August, while mowing our front lawn (on a very steep hill) Iexperienced some difficulty breathing. Went in the house and rested,contemplating calling 911 (the emergency number). As I recovered, I didn't. Bythe following Wednesday, I was experiencing difficulty breathing, so, went to

the doctor. After a few questions, he referred me to a cardiologist. This was theafternoon Nancy was returning from Merrie Olde Englande and her visit there.The cardio man told me, "Forget the airport, you are going in for evaluation!"Luckily we were able to get the studies done and still meet Nancy. The docwanted to admit me for further studies, but I have this thing about paying $6000a day for a hotel room! Anyway, after an angiograph it was determined that I wassuffering from cardiomyopathy - in lay terms, a lazy heart muscle. Further tests put me on a transplant list at Stanford Hospital (sometime in the next three tofive years). I was relieved of work and have been loafing around the house untillast week, Wednesday.I was sitting here at the computer dealing with Social Security, insurance andother bothersome red tape when I felt dizzy and nauseated. I woke up to find mydaughter Sarah and her boyfriend yelling at me to wake up - I had collapsed onthe floor. In due time, the county sheriff, the fire department and the local paramedic unit were called and I was taken to hospital. My doctor said theywould hold me for 24 hours and I could go home. I had another episodeThursday AM and within 3 hours was back in Angio for an electro-physiologicstudy. Within four hours of the results from that study, I was scheduled for surgery to have the pacer implanted. It seems that as part of the EP study, theheart is induced to atrial fibrillation. Problem was they almost couldn'treconvert!! For those of you who watch medical dramas on TV, defibrillation isno fun!! I had been sedated but woke up coming off the table, shocked!!Anyhooo - they got me back and the pacer in and after a week, I am home, tired,sore but feeling much better. The pacer is doing it's job. The surgeon commentedthat, "Someone up there was looking out for you - you were a walking time bomb!" Thanks for the moral support!
Overheard in Winsted, CT: "The Norfolk Bruderhof has been sold, andthe new owners want to make it into a detention camp or some sort of 'place of confinement.' The locals are not pleased..."
Andy Harries,
11/24/95: I would like to write about a few memories of Buddug,My family has known Buddug for a long time. My parents joined the Bruderhof at about the same time as Gwynn and Buddug, in the early days in England. Bothour families went to Paraguay in 1941, I believe, and then in 1945 Gwynn andmy father were sent to help in England a year before the rest of us (we followeda year later).My birthday is on the same day as Gwynn's, and one of my most specialmemories is of Gwynn and Buddug inviting Jenny and me to their home onSunday afternoon for tea and cakes on my birthday each year. They both were sonice to us and always explained and demonstrated how to make proper Englishtea. Of our family, only Jenny and I were left in Wheathill at that time. The restof our family were either at Bulstrode or at the Sinntal Bruderhof.
