Galla and Jaenet

Galla and Jaenet.

My family moved to Santa Fe-and I started at Prep-in October of our junior year. Jaenet, Mary, Ed, and Larry were my first (and best) friends. They really welcomed me and made the transition to a new school and town bearable and enjoyable for me.

Jaenet especially was so very warm, unassuming, and open in her dealings with me (and everyone I saw her with). I remember being astounded that someone so beautiful, funny, and fiercely intelligent displayed not a shred of ego. Really, she didn't have to give me the time of day and it wouldn't have mattered to her, but that wasn't her way of interacting with people. As you know, she was a ray of sunshine in many people's lives (mine included). And she was wise and mature beyond her years (much more mature than I was!).

Anyway, on Wednesdays none of the five of us had afternoon classes so we would often leave school for the day. We would pile into one or two cars and have lunch together at Tomasita's. This was where I learned to love green chile. And one of the places our friendships were nurtured.

Truthfully, Jaenet and I ate together many times at Tomasita's. Recently, I was there for dinner with my family and couldn't help but think about Jaenet. So, I told my wife and daughter about the fond memories I had of eating there with Jaenet and the others.
