Marilyn recently had the opportunity to have lunch with friends she has not seen in over 50 years. It was wonderful. Marilyn first knew Connie and her brother, Jerry, when she visited them in Miami, TX with their cousin and Marilyn’s good friend, Barbara. When Marilyn first arrived at the University of Texas in Austin, a scared little freshman, it was wonderful to have a friend in Connie. Connie bleached her hair for her (it turned green but Connie fixed that!). After two years in Austin Marilyn continued her studies at UTMB in Galveston. And who should she find there, just starting medical school? Jerry! Connie and Jerry were in Albuquerque for the balloon festival (along with Barbara) so we drove to Albuquerque and had lunch with them. It was great to catch up.
