I received word that Douglas Abraham passed away on October 18th in Bozman, MT.
He had COPD for a number of years. He moved from Minot after the ninth grade. He and I shared a common birthday of March 24th. We were fast friends during his years in Minot. We shared many memorable times together. I will miss his hearty laugh and sense of humor. May he rest in peace.

Invocation for 55th year Minot High School Reunion from Scott Huff!!


Let us Pray:  Loving God, Creator of all, Sustainer of our life and Giver of every good gift.  Look upon us as we joyfully assemble for worship as the Class of '61 to remember times past and renew friendships made when hair was short and plentiful and skirts were long and colorful. We are so grateful for the wonderful memories of our high school days – days filled with laughter, with shouts of joy and happiness, with dreams and aspirations, with energy and enthusiasm, and lifelong friendships. We treasure the valuable gifts we are to one another! Help us forget how much we have advanced in age and by your grace, remember how much we have grown in wisdom and experience.  We give thanks for Minot High School and the gifts she engraved on our hearts and minds and for the teachers, coaches and staff who taught and encouraged us - who even at times disciplined us. May we always remember with gratitude their part in making us who we are today. Let us continue to honor them by keeping our hearts and minds open and young.  We remember classmates who couldn't travel here this weekend and those who have died and now reside in your heavenly Kingdom. Take them in your loving embrace. Draw their spirits ever closer to you.   We offer our heartfelt thanks for those who have worked so creatively to make this reunion a reality and give us a taste of years past by helping us recall all the pleasant memories and special friendships.
