I first met Doris Rouland Herring as a young school girl in Southern Calif. I soon learned that she likes and prefers to be called Dorrie. She lived on the next street and the access for me to visit was to go through our orange grove (southern Calif. did have orange groves at that time) and across the strawberry fields and there she was. Always a welcome smile. We got along famously and have remained life long friends, We, now in our 70’s. Now, rockin’ chair friends.

We went to grammer school together at Centralia school in Anaheim. We hit it off right away and have remained close for all these many years. At times we will recall many pleasant memories of these “olden” times, like visiting Mrs. Fowler, our school teacher at her home and having tea. Comparing notes on studies and our friends. I used to be at her house more than ours. I thought when she moved into the big city of Anaheim, only five miles away but so so far away at that time, I would lose her. But, not so. I joined her for many activities and spent the night many times. We went so many places together and even joined the Val Moore Hawaiian Dance group, where we learn all styles of Polynesian dancing and enjoyed the time we spent. Attended high school and many events.

We both eventually married and I moved to the far north, Seattle Washinton. We never did lose touch and visited back and forth many times. Dorrie’s first two children were my daughters age, so it was like our own when we were together.

Through the years , we both have experienced many trials and tribulations, but never losing faith and of course our precious friendship, lasting through the ages. We both attended our 50th Anaheim Union High School reunion and the 55th is coming up. We have and will stay very close, in fact, I call her family, MY California Family. Such a loving and generous family. I feel blessed to have discovered a great friendship at such a young age that has lasted for oh, so many years.
