Can you imagine the giggling and trouble our mothers could have gotten into had they met in their younger days?? What a blessing to have spent time with Sis as our mother's roommate at the home. We will never forget the twinkle in her eye and the smile she would give when she recognized us. Heaven gained a sweet, little angel.
