Our Christmas baby sister, Linda Lou, (my little "Holly")
She took care of us and helped mom a lot.
Rode horses and ran through the sprinklers, watched movies at the drive in, from our back porch in Tucson, and gazed at the open sky looking at the stars and wondered about the expanse of space . We played together in the big blue playhouse dad built.
Howie came along and we learned about boys and brotherly things. Dad was proud in a different way.
Kim helped us through many life situations. Lessons like, how not to sit on sissors, and getting your tonsils out reap rewards like.. A lot of ice cream. Then, ailments cause you to appreciate each other more. Life is valuable.
Growing up with a big sister has its rewards, like playing with her toys and having someone to walk home with from school.
She taught us to sing our hearts out with every musical like Camelot , The Sound of Music and the new English rock stars - The Beatles. She loves you, yeah yeah yeah. We imitated them with badminton rackets and acted out performances.
