Remembering our high school years when four of us girls, Loris Lynn,Judy,Sharon and me, walked to school together or rode in Sharon’s English Ford. Those were the good ole days, and I remember them fondly. Long time friends have a special place in your heart no matter the miles or the years.

Although Loris Lynn disappeared off the radar; the mention of her name stirred the strings of the harp of my memory: it was always a pleasant memory. The loss of any of my classmates and friends arouses latent emotions and revives vivid memories of the good times we shared. My prayer is for any of her surviving stepchildren and family; and for all my classmates. God Bless. Jack
