P.S. 282, July 2009
Here we are in our heyday, circa 1989...
And here we are twenty years later, some of us married, some of us parents, all of us a little fatter (but also feet taller), and still kids at heart.
One person missing from the second photo is Abibio "Troy" Sandy (far left in the first photo, in the hat), who passed away in July, and whose death was one of the reasons for our reunion.
We missed you, Abibio.
There was a whole lot of love in that beer garden.
It was especially nice to get UTAH back together.
UTAH in correct order: Una, Tara, Adrianna, Halima
There's something so deeply moving about being reunited with people who knew you as a child, before you knew heartbreak or worry lines or the term "stressed out." These people knew me just when I was beginning to know myself, and I'll always love them.
