The first time I met Liya, we were both enthusiastic undergrads just looking for the next great adventure with some great new people. Almost 20 years later, I find myself partying with her, her family and her new husband in California.
She's one of the few people who I've climbed mountains with in college. We spent some great nights in weird situations that included chickens, cliffs, curfews, utilizing swimming pools in manners not usually suggested... I am blessed to have kept her friendship and even more blessed to be there to tell the story of her big day with Amir.
I wish them both nothing but the best. I know in my heart that they will keep each other smiling.
