Mardy and Todd, although I have never met you, I want to say to you that your mother and I were very good friends during our high school years. In fact, we had our 16th birthday together. Our parents bought each of us a mouton coat; needless to say, we were so excited. Portia's coat was brown and mine was titanium gray :) We had several classes together, including Journalism. I found a photo just a couple weeks ago with the two of us at the printing press, lol. We double-dated some after she and your dad met, then of course they got married. Though we didn't keep in touch much after graduation, I thought of her so often. I want to tell you this, and I know it may sound strange, but I was driving home from Texas, on Friday, when she vividly popped into my mind. I thought to myself, I'm going to call Portia this weekend. I am sorry that I didn't, but I do want you to know your mother was a wonderful friend, and I loved her as friends do. I could probably tell you lots of things we did together, and maybe one day we will meet. I do not travel as much as have in the past, I will be 81 on February 16th, need I say more, haha. But if I do get back to OKC, and you are there, I would love to meet you and your families. God bless you and yours always!
