Wednesday Wisdom

You don't have to reach for the stars, to be among them

Today, a good friend I've known since high school, Terri Leonard Cook, is being put to rest. She passed away Saturday morning after a long kidney battle.  She is pictured top right when the PA gals got together in 2004.

Terri was incredibly brave through two kidney transplants, tons of dialysis, and plenty of other health struggles in between.  Through it all, she enjoyed her family, grandkids, and friends. Thoughtful, kind, artistic, funny -  Terri loved Elton John music, Harry Potter, and books.

She will be missed and remembered. I'm fortunate I knew her as a friend.

Wednesday wisdom - don't take your health for granted. Be a good friend. And listen to Goodbye Yellow Brick Road....


  1. So sorry you lost such a dear friend. Prayers for her family and friends.

    1. thanks. And she had a lot of friends. I'm sure her service will be full today.

  2. Hi Joanne - so difficult to lose such a close friend - early (relatively) in life... yet fortunate to have those children and grandchildren. Health is essential for us ... may she rest in peace, while peace too to her family. Thank you - Hilary

    1. thanks so much. Tough day from afar. I wish I could have zoomed in for the service. But our gang will celebrate her in March when I do have a flight to PA.

  3. Sorry to hear about your friend. Very true, we should never take health for granted.

    1. thanks. It was in her genetics - her mother and a sister died from the same issues. Very sad.
