Some folks send thank you notes, but leave it to Children’s Health System of Texas CEO Chris Durovich to show real appreciation. After all the holidays and New Year’s hoopla, he took advantage of the “down time” to thank those who had supported the Children’s Health efforts to providing area children with excellence in healthcare like Carol Seay, Cynthia Beaird, Katy and Ken Menges, Cyndi Bassel and Marnie and Kern Wildenthal.
Despite NFL football competitions and a Democratic showdown, Chris and his wife Christina Durovich hosted a thank-you affair for about 200 at the Dallas Country Club on Sunday, January 17. It was one of those gatherings that was so user-friendly that everyone seemed to know everybody in the room and the hosts were chatting it up with one and all.
John Eagle was going solo. Wife Jennifer Eagle was MIA. She was helping Eagle patriarch, Bob Eagle, move to his new digs at Edgemere. In discussing the move, John voiced concern about the challenges of the AARP set when it comes to falling.
Upon hearing John’s concerns, Peter Lutken admitted that he had been surprised about the death of a friend, who just a couple of weeks before had fallen and then succumbed to his injuries.
On the other hand, Craig Leslie was reporting that Leslie’s son, who had been holed up in a spot near Telluride, just might be thinking about returning to the Dallas nest.
