|Linda Newman (glare from picture of a picture)|
I keep waiting to get a text or email. "did you feel the earthquake? I heard there was one near you" My reply was "no" her answer was "Man, you texans are hard to impress" She sparked my interest in photography. I bought my first 35mm because of her. She showed me tricks with the camera. She encouraged me to write a children's book summer between 6th and 7th grade (i wonder if that is in my parents' attic or if it went to the trash pile during a move) My first (and only) Jr Bridesmaid gig was for her. I still have the bridesmaid charm she gave me for my bracelet. I have happy memories of that summer we drove from texas to st louis with her and her student. I remember the drive we made with her and 2 girlfriends. 3 kids, 3 single women and cases of Coors in the back window ledge. Many men tried to pick them up-you couldn't get Coors in missouri back then :) I won't list everything here. The memories mean much to me-not others. Believe me when i say i miss you every day Linda.
