A Birthday Remembered



My dear big sister, Prudy, would have been 79 today.  Here she is as a little girl.  Our big brother used to tease her(and me) and say, when she reached her teens, that she looked like a plucked chicken.  I think she was a darling, beautiful little girl.  
Prudence Ann Caswell (Goodnow) ca. 1939-1940
There is nothing quite like the unconditional love of a big sister.

Enjoy the day.

As always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*

    1. Hi Cathy....She didn't like it growing up, but as an adult appreciated it. I love old fashioned names.

    1. Hi Gary....I don't know if you ever stop missing loved ones. When she moved to Florida we spent hours on the phone just being silly sisters!
