Reflections from the Past
<<<+>>>
My dear sister...
The only one I had...
Had to leave that day...
And it sure left me sad...
<<<+>>>
The memories I hold of her...
Are so sweet to me..
She and I had quite a time...
When we talked with glee...
<<<+>>>
Made the trip to CA..
Every year, it seemed...
To see her only sister...
It sure made her beam....
<<<+>>>
We went to Agate beach...
On a picnic too....
Then out to eat, Chinese...
Chow-mein, and not that foo..
<<<+>>>
She always looked forward...
To the trip all year...
Waiting for the summer...
To hurry and get here..
<<<+>>>
She would call or write to me..
All excited in the Spring...
Talking of the coming trip..
And sometimes she would sing...
<<<+>>>
I miss her joyful face...
And her childlike glee...
When she called and talked...
Of coming to see me!
My dear sister died on Christmas morning 1988
She would come to see me in California just about
every year. She always looked forward to visiting
with my family. They would save all year to make
the trip. Those times are so precious to me.
Thanks Lillian, for being my sister.
