|The girl on the left here is Stephanie Montondon, one of my sweet high school friends. Bob Shields, my high school guidance counselor, is on the right. Bob spent all day one school day about 13 years ago talking to me when I was at a low point in my life. His care and attention helped me get on to the road to being a happy, well-adjusted person. I did a story on Fran, his wife, a few years ago. She needed a second liver transplant, and I covered a fundraiser in her honor. She pulled through the transplant OK, but passed away about a year later from complications.
