    I’m sure going to miss my sisters phone calls. You know the funny part. We could never call her before 9am. so I would call at 9:15. LOL! And we could talk for an hour or two. And we always had something to talk about if it was from our growing up together, to our kids, grand kids and family. I still look at the clock to see if it’s 9am. to give her a call. =( I may be able to call her but, I’ll still talk to her. ♥ and miss you, Karen. ♥ Jo Jo
