Last week, I was looking at a couple of pictures hanging on my library wall. The first was the 1956 little league ball team and there was Terry. The second picture was our 1958 all star team that went to Columbia to play for the state championship . Terry and I first became friends in 1949 when we lived across from each other on Farley Ave. and graduated from Laurens High School in 1963. Over the years we didn't see each other as often, but when we did, it seemed that we just picked up where we had stopped. I believe the last time that Terry and I talked was at The Hub.Good memories and old friends are hard to beat.
