I was classmates with Starr at Wayndedale Elementary in Mrs. Robinette's 1st grade class. They were constructing the new building, and it was almost done, and we were moving from the old building into the new one in a few weeks. All around the old playground were earth movers and back hoes just parked. One day during recess, Starr ran up to me on the playground and grabbed my hand, proclaiming, "You are my Boyfriend!", and pulled me behind one of those big trucks and kissed me--my 1st--and for a week or so we held hands during recess and were always sneaking behind that truck. Then just as soon as it started, it was over, when Starr let my hand go and said, "Youre not my boyfriend anymore!", and went over to hold Stan Allens hand. Starr was my 1st girlfriend, and even though we grew apart and only recently reconnected on Facebook, I always remember those innocent days in Wayndedale, and her. Love to Starrs Family and Friends--a bright light has gone out.
