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....
