I held a party the other week and grief came.
She wasn’t invited but she came anyway – barged her way in through the door and settled down like she was here to stay.

And then she introduced me to the friends she’d brought with her – Anger. Fear. Frustration. Guilt. Hopelessness.

And they sang in the loudest voices, took up space in every corner of my room and spoke over anyone else that tried to talk.

They made it messy and loud and uncomfortable.

But finally, they left.

And long afterwards, when I was all alone,
I realised there was still someone here.
Quietly cleaning up after the rest.

I asked who she was and she told me, “Love.”

And I assumed that’s why she looked familiar – because I had met her before.

“Or perhaps,” she said, “it’s because I’ve been here the whole time.”

And I was confused then because I hadn’t seen her all evening.
But when I looked more closely,
when I looked into her eyes,

I realised quietly that she had been here.
All the time.

She’d just been dressed as grief.

Sometimes it helps to remember that underneath our grief, there is love. It was there before, it’s there now and it will still be there afterwards.
Love endures like nothing else can.

I never got to meet Amanda but from everything I saw and heard about her she was a beautiful person. She will be sorely missed by many

Dianna Schoenrock wrote on Sep. 27, 2014 Mandy was one of my best friends when I lived in Thailand. She was always so full of life, full of laughter, and full of love. Oh, did we have so much fun in Bangkok together! And did we laugh! No one could ever be a better friend or confidante. The world has lost a beautiful soul, but heaven has gained a new one.

My heart is broken finding out this has happened to our Manda. My mind reflects on memories of her jokes that made me laugh as we were kids, her quick witted responses, and her beautiful smile. We all will meet again when God calls us. Rest in peace my cousin.


On behalf of the Jones, Brandt and Addington Family we thank you for your support and Love for our Beautiful Mandy.

Departed ~ 3/21/2014 ~ Pancreatic Cancer

Dad lost his courageous fight tonight after 2 years, 1 month and 10 days to Pancreatic Cancer. I can not describe in words his bravery, his attitude and his battle. I will never do anything more important in my life than what I have done in the last 6 months–(and the last 25 months) to take care of the best man I have ever known–what an incredible honor!!!!! I’ve never in my life known anyone who loves better than he could!!!! I’m so very thankful God chose him for me!!!!! I am so very fortunate to have had such a loving and wonderful Daddy. I know I will see him again someday and I’m so very thankful he isn’t in pain any more!!!!! Alisha McGaughey

Bernard “Bernie” Kinney ~ Class of 1967


It has taken me a good deal of time to make this decision as it concerns my younger brother who attended ISB from 1964 until 1967 and graduated with the class of 1967. My brother, Bernard (Bernie) Kinney passed away from medical issues on October 9, 2014 in Monterey California.

Bernie the son of Earl J and Adelle E (Jarvis) Kinney, born February 7, 1949 was a long time resident in San Jose California and previously from Northern Virginia and Maryland.

A Vietnam Veteran with the 101st Airborn Division. He is survived by myself Gary E also an alumni of ISB. I attended the school for one year from 1964 until 1965.

I was going through some family matters and came across the records and decided it should be known by his friends and classmates at ISB. I would appreciate someone in the association including his name and memory in the gone but not forgotten directory listing on the association web site.

I thank you for taking care of this matter.

Complications related to Parkinson’s

Posted by brother Bill William Clarke  67′:

My wonderful brother Richard Clarke passed from life at approximately 3 am in Toulouse, France on 5/14/2019, from medical complications (Parkinson’s related) after a heroic struggle to recover over the last 2 and a half months in the hospital, he was 68 years, 3 months and 14 days old. He attended ISB from 1965 until he graduated with the class of 1968. He will be sorely missed by his family, his spouse and soulmate Christine Caminat, and his many friends in America and in Europe, where he spent so much of his life working in France and Germany. I will be posting more pictures from his life later, here is the last picture of him, he had this made for his passport renewal last year 2018. I will remember him always as the kindest brother of all, he was always gentle with people, never a mean word, he had a gentle soul, so handsome in his youth, played in a band at school called the “Soul Remains.” as I recall, with his brother David Clarke and others at ISB, God and the angels will take care of him now.
