In Memory

Margaretta Newell

She became an advocate for those in wheelchairs. I heard she chained herself to a political officials desk to get his attention for her cause. She was my first friend with a car and it was a 57' chevy!! We used to cruise Broadway until our $1.00 of gas played out and rock to Three Dog Night. Still think of her fondly when I hear "One." She played clarinet in the band.
