My friend Judge Twyla Gray died a year ago last October after a twenty year battle with breast cancer.
A few months before she died, she gave this speech at TEDxOKC.
Twyla and I were first elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives together in 1980. She and her husband, Charles, set up the blind date that kicked off the courtship between me and my husband. Twyla was a brilliant woman whose career ultimately led her to spend many years as a District Judge.
She was also a prayerful Christian and a devoted wife and mother.
