I met Heidi in 1985. She was the roommate of a friend of mine from high school and had only recently moved to Atlanta. We hit it off right away. We spent the next three years joined at the hip and indulging our whims without any limits. In fact, it took me 5 1/2 years to get through college because of our friendship. I think it took her 8 years! LOL! We had so much fun going to shows, parties, bars and generally hanging out and doing whatever we wanted. I can remember Heidi talking me out of going to class and instead driving around in her VW Cabriolet singing Judas Priest at the top of our lungs and plotting our next adventure. Boy, did she love that car. When she first got it, we would look for things to throw. We would drive around for hours throwing things out of her car. I know it sounds weird, but it was really entertaining. There was a bar that was on Peachtree Street that had an enclosed brick patio. We would throw Black Cat firecrackers into the patio and laugh hysterically as everyone scattered. Circus peanuts were another favorite. And dill pickles. She finally moved away and we both did some growing up. But we kept in touch up until a year or so before her death. I really miss her so much. The days we had together were some of the best of my life.
