They reminisced about my Dad… and exchange news briefly in each other’s lives…

Not… a long conversation… just a “keep-in-touch” phone call…

Linda would say she had a list of names k12930689that she called … and Mom was a priority

I loved her for that!…

This went on for many years until Mom passed… at 98 years…

Linda said she just loved them… “my parents”…

It seems that they showed her love and care

Linda said her list was growing short… so I suggested she add some new names… and I would love it if one of them could be mesca0386
