His Mom and I were friends before she was married, so we go back even further. I was the Maid of Honor in her wedding and she was my Maid of Honor when Jim and I got married. So you can see the strong connection. We have not seen nor talked to one another in 10 years, but the minute we both got out of the car, it was like it was yesterday. We couldn't stop grinning and hugging!
We had so much in common, it is incredible. The day my Jennifer was born, her sister was at the same hospital having a little girl too. She was assistant to the county manager for over 30 years and worked at the court house. So did my Mother and she said yesterday how much she loved my Mom.
We couldn't talk fast enough to get all the memories out. When I was 18 years old, I took a trip across the country with her family. She is from a huge family and they just included me in everything. Her grandmother lived in California, so we all headed west! Two cars full! I was able to see all the national parks, and we even went to Disneyland. Disney World had not been built nor even thought of that I know.
