Young “Chick” in a “Crick”

 

    I like this picture of my sister Betty when she was 18, wading in the creek at Grandpa’s little farm in Fordland, Missouri.

   In April she will celebrate her 80th birthday.

May we all be as active, cheerful and caring when we approach 80!

    Very little about her has changed. Her smile is identical. Her eyes – the same. Beautiful

  2. Sandra says:

    I think so too, Hilary. She is a wonderful example to me of how I want to live my life, so it’s hard for me to tell if she’s beautiful on the outside because I know her heart and that is what makes her beautiful to me.
