Debbie Daly Louis writes: The greatest gift I received from Hood College is the friendship of Audrey MacDonald Wilcox, Lisa O’Brien, Gretchen Miller Anderson, Lisa Edwards, and Robin Samuelman Kalfaian. I remember hanging out at the Coffee House and singing James Taylor’s song, “You’ve Got a Friend”. I didn’t know then how the lyrics, “You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am I’ll come running,” would ring true to our friendship. All these girls were present at my April 2017 wedding to my best friend Richard Louis.
