We were friends since high school and shared in each other’s lives as we married (I introduced her to John), had children, sharing happy and sad times as the years passed. And although our lives went in separate directions as happens in life, we still kept in touch through the years. We met for the last time early this year, probably just before she became ill. Tiri was the one of the best people I will ever know. Her family and friends were always very important to her. I will miss her greatly.
