Happy Birthday Favorite Sister

April 14 is Nancy's (my favorite sister) birthday. We are 12 years apart in age and when I was very young that was probably a big difference but not anymore. She grew up in Ridgely & Tiptonville, Tennessee until they moved to St. Louis when she was about 11? Most of my memories as a child of us was stories I was told. She and her friends would take me for walks around the block - and you already know how she had to skip school for me when I was in kindergarten. What I remember is getting to sleep in her double bed with her for awhile (I guess Jimmy got me kicked out of the crib). I would try to cuddle up to her but she was 17 and wanted her space. I was flower girl in her wedding - (pictures on their anniversary) and when Ed would go out of town I got to spend the night over there with her and the girls. Now we have all kinds of fun - trips to Reelfoot Lake and once to Paducah, Kentucky. We need to do some more trips! We enjoy teaching a 2 & 3 year old Bible class together and we go to a book club together. We (husbands included) go to the Rep and Stages for plays. I could never have asked for a better sister. She's always happy and only has nice things to say. She's not only lots of fun to be with but she's always there for us when we need her. And she always answers all my "silly questions" I call her about. Nancy - I love you and I hope you have a most wonderful birthday!
