Kate Heald and I met in elementary school. I remember the most delightful afternoon when her parents took us out on their pontoon boat. Her father even let me drive. Over the years, we had drifted apart, then last April, at the Big Nosh, an annual celebration held at the Tree of Life Synagogue, we reconnected while waiting for our lunches. This week, as our State Fair is readying to open, I see on Facebook that Kate has a wildlife painting hanging among the juried exhibits. Congratulations to Kate. May you continue to thrive in this endeavor and all others!
