Memories and Metamorphosis

Few people can say that they’ve had the same friend through the entirety of their lives, from grade school all the way into college years. I have, and the journey we’ve been on has taught me many lessons about life, loyalty and friendship.

Andrea Favazza, left, and Lorraine Linson became friends in kindergarten and, despite moving into different interests and circles later in school, they managed to remain close friends even today, proving that friendship is more about experiences than similarities. This photo was taken in 2019 as they were graduating from Fort Zumwalt North High School. The two are posing underneath the tree that was their favorite meeting place on their elementary school playground.     Photo by Ann Linson
