FRIENDS FOREVER Childhood friendships in Uvalde have only grown stronger for Sally Cone of Bunker Hill, Kami Buri of Wilchester, and Amanda Hughes Pickering of West University (pictured, from left), who love each other like family.
GROWING UP TOGETHER The Uvalde Girls, as they refer to their text thread, have seen each other from childhood to parenthood. Here are some of the gals during their high school days.

CONGREGATING IN CONCAN The group of seven women meet annually in Concan, the second weekend of June, husbands and children in tow, for much needed catch-up time and fun on the Frio River.
