Helen Haigh Mills my oldest (?) friend.
We played together before we were old
enough to go to school. Both had parasols, started first grade together at Sharpstein, until pneumonia kept her at home, in a wheelchair, all before antibiotics. Weekly draining of fluids, maybe left a scar on her back?? Summers, vacationing up beyond Kooskooskie, we picked berries, hiked, learned to swim in Mill Creek, played endless together, as our families picnicked, played charades around...
