My Sister Nancy; What a great big sister! When we were growing up you would play games and ball with us, build Forts and made snow animals for us to play on, how creative. You never complained to us. But maybe to MOM !! Then later in life we traveled together. Trips to: Disney, Las Vegas, Aruba, Ft Myers Beach and a Girls trip (Tracy, Tricia, Nancy and Kathy) to Key West. What Fun!! Then I decided to move to Florida you came along to help me select the right Condo. One with a room for YOU !! Your plan all along was to spend the winters here swimming, enjoying the sun and hitting the Hot Spots!! I will miss your craziness and all the good times we had and most of all not having you in my life.. Love Always, Your Little sister, Kathy
