Rediscovered friends find trees, new strength amid pandemic

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — They were best friends since middle school, smart girls who made the honor roll, played in the youth symphony and dreamed big dreams, none of which included athletic prowess.
"We were nerds," Cathy Callow-Heusser said.
"Geeks and nerds," Karen Colvin added.
They graduated from Eldorado High School in 1976, and as smart girls do, both made their way in the world, their paths leading them far from home and far from each other.
Colvin was the rambler, moving to Texas and Missouri for nursing school and nurse anesthetist school before settling in Wisconsin.
