"Just You and I"

“Just You and I”

It was providence that brought a petite bright green-eyed 18-year-old originally from Illinois to Waverly, Tennessee to connect with a tall brunette from Madison, Tennessee, when they met at Austin Peay State University.  It was summer of 1969 and both Cindy and Mary had applied for the CWSP for summer work before they started the Fall semester of their Freshman year of college.  In June, both girls moved into Sevier Hall on campus for 2 months, then another dorm for 1 month, before moving into Harned Hall, the 3-story Freshman Dormitory.  Mary’s first job was in the Campus Bookstore in the Student Center and then she transferred to Student Secretary in the Industrial Arts/Technology Department working for Dr. Bibb.  He and his wife became special friends to Mary and she thought of them many times over the years.  Cindy worked as a Student Secretary in Administration for the Dean.  She attended Austin Peay for most of her education, finishing later in NY.  Mary  moved from Nashville to Oregon in 1974, then lived in NC, AZ ending up for over 20 years in the city of and also above the foothills of Boise, ID.  Cindy lived for many years in NY, shortly in NC, now enjoying a beautiful area of Georgia.  Mary feels blessed to have so many friends scattered over the country, but will always have a special place in her heart for “Cindy”…”It was nice to be able to sing at her Cowboy/Western wedding out in the country last May, “Just You and I”.
