Terry and I went to Bakersfield Jr. College from 1970-1972.  We took classes in Medical Office Assisting.  Sometimes instead of taking the bus, we would drive to school together.  Once or twice, Terry picked me up in her Mother-in-law's sports car.  We rode with the top down and enjoyed the speed of the car and the wind in our hair.  It was so much fun!   

I took a picture of Terry and Greg at the Mt. Festival one year.  Later after the picture was developed, I noticed Terry's shy smile.  Greg had his hand on her backside and she discreetly tried to move his hand as I shot the picture!

My son, Robert was born in January 1977 and Terry's son was born in April 1977.  It was such a good feeling to know that we both knew the joy of being a mom.  Sadly, that year, Terry,  her baby boy and Greg died.  It was a tragic ending for my friend and her family.  I miss Terry.  I miss her laughter, her smile, and her fun-loving ways.  I miss her.
