Little sister

Where does it go, time? It is just a blur. My little sister, Carolyn, died almost a year ago — August 6. Her birthday was yesterday, July 21.

I miss her more than I can say. Memories crowd in. She was part of my life for all of my life.

Somehow this old photo survived my many moves. It was taken in 1948, at the Junior-Senior Prom, Oklahoma A & M College, Stillwater. I’m the one on the right. Carolyn and her date, Charles are on the left. They got married at the end of that school year and had a long and eventful life together.

How young we were! It’s just as well we didn’t know what the future held. It would have scared us half to death.
