Sandra, or Yvonne, as I called her, was one of the many friends that I met while living at the YWCA in Akron, Ohio. I had just moved here from Kentucky, and she was one of the few that had welcomed me and made me feel at home. We were both Libras, her birthday on October 4th and mine on the 15th. We attended many Akron U parties together and remained good friends after college and also through her lengthy tenure while living in Chicago, and finally retiring from the government, and returning back to Ohio. Little did I know that her Birthday and Mother's Day wishes to me just a few months ago would be her last. Long lasting friendships are hard to find, and we remained friends for 47 years. I will miss you, Yvonne!! Until next time......... Wanda
