Margaret Mead said:
Often... sisters become each other's chosen and most happy companions.
In addition to their shared memories of childhood and of their relationship to each others children, they share the memories of the same home, the same homemaking style, and the same small prejudices about housekeeping the carry the echoes of their mother's voice.
I am sad that you have forgotten that I was your treasured companion.
I am sad that you have forgotten the shared memories of our childhood.
I am sad that you have forgotten your children and mine.
I am sad that you have forgotten the memories of our home at 1805 St. Charles Court.
I am sad that you have forgotten how mother decorated for Christmas and her famous Thanksgiving dinner.
I am sad that you have forgotten mother's voice saying...don't open an umbrella in the house, go out the same door that you came in, don't be a boys proving ground, always remember your Colley pride, blood is thicker than water, always call and come home and many other sayings.
I am sad that you have forgotten mothers voice and mine as well.
I am glad that you had those things for a precious, few years.
You might have forgotten in your mind but I know that those memories will remain in your soul for....
They will always remain in mine!
I Love You Today, Peggy!
Merry Christmas 2006.
