As I started my weekly hunt for throwback images this morning, on my Facebook notifications page, they posted my memories from today going back the last few years. The very first one was a comment from a friend in the industry about Terry Deglau passing away on September 14, 2019.
Off I went in search of grab-shots with Terry, and with each one, the smile on my face got bigger. Yeah, there was a tear here and there, but throwbacks are about reliving memories that make your heart soar. The ones I pulled together above are the tip of the iceberg. We did so many things together, and as you can tell, the four musketeers were Terry, Tony Corbell, Don Blair, and yours truly. Rarely was there a convention that the four of us weren't creating chaos.
But my favorite is the one here of the four of us. And while Don and Terry might have "left the building," Tony and I are the keepers of the memories and stories!
Nothing beats great memories. Old photographs are the mortar that keeps all the bricks of friendships together. And while we all miss people we've lost, it's those throwback photos that help create a very special immortality and testimonial to the impact they had on our lives.
Happy Throwback Thursday!
