four of us in the October picture met 35 years ago in Maple Hall
and have stayed close friends all these years. Our time at North
Texas was so special for all of us. None of us chose to be in
a sorority, but no sorority sisters could be closer. We all got
married and had kids about the same time. In October we took
a weekend trip to Lake Murray and Turner Falls in Oklahoma. We
stopped in Denton on the way and took a quick tour of campus.
It brought back so many memories for us. We think it's
amazing that we've stayed friends for so long.
