Sept. 2018 -- It's a small world. Laurie Halladay's pledge sister Laurie Peters Althen, Delta Xi (Missouri), lives in Denver. Laurie said, "I had hoped she would connect with Barbara O’Connor, one of our own Deltas from Sarasota, FL." Barbara moved to Denver after 2018 season to be with family.
Laurie sent an email (to Ms. Peters) and advised that Barbara was going to attend the Denver DDD Alumnae dinner with speaker, Tori Campbell, President of Foundation. I knew one of our other Sisters, Chrys Hyde, had helped Barbara connect so I assumed Barbara might attend," said Laurie.
So, she said that she sent Barbara’s photo to Laurie Peters and asked her to keep an eye out for Barbara. Alas, a photo of Barbara and Laurie P. showed up. "Two of my favorite DDDs connected in Denver, and they both look great".
"We all miss Barbara, but at least she has another Laurie DDD sister".
Cheers to farflung sisters in the coming new season of 2018-2019.
