Kim was my roomamte for all four years. she was the one who decided to change her name from Kay to Kim and to change my name from Mary-Ellen to Melon, when I was not sure that i wanted that name.  it didn't matter--she told everone in our dorm, Abby.   I remember hitching rides with church members to go to the Catholic Church, doing a duet together in Water Ballet, trying to learn to skion a mini hill at MHC, loving the cheese omlets at North Rocky, reading her English Lit books, our ttiny temp double and then requesting big rooms on the top floor, and so much more.  Karen Barnes was our other rommmate and now they have both passed away.  So sad to have lost such dear friends. I last saw Kim in Los Angelos when I was out with my daugher, who was a bridesmaid in a former neighbors wedding.  Kim had been my Maid of Honor and Karen one of my bridesmaids when I married Mike 6/8/1963 .
