  1. Dearest Maggie,

    I feel such guilt that I haven't met in so many years across from her apt. complex with you. I wanted to let you know that in NO WAY is it because I have forgotten her, or, you, for that matter. I think of her every single day. That is not an exaggeration.

    I'd like to share my most poignant memories with you now, one good, one the worst of my life.

    Good first. :)
    Josh and I were at your house when she came staggering in the front door, ex boyfriend in tow. She then proceeds to pass straight out onto the ground in the doorway. As we're telling the boyfriend to leave, she ever so slyly winks at josh and I. :) What a briti moment!

    Now for the second....
    Only once in my life have I ever said to myself "wake up, wake up, wake up!" until the morning when Josh was the first one notified. That was truly the worst day of my life. I'm sure you know that while Briti and I were friends, we weren't THAT close, but josh.... Josh is my soul mate. I felt his pain, and still do.

    Much respect for all that you do Maggie.

    1. Jen I love you!!!!! And next time I come to Tulsa I am taking you out to dinner. Did you know I met someone you know. Well not met face to face but online during the failed Poker Run promotion?

      I remember both of the stories. I laughed with Brittany about the first one.
      And the saving grace of Josh being notified first was that at least for him it was done in the right way, asking him to come outside, having a chaplain etc. Mine all I got was a one am knock on my door opeing to rain and a very young sherrif saying, are you maggie zingman , you need to call tulsa PD your daughter has been murdered.
