To the family of Barbara,  it has been many years since I worked for your family, but Barbara and I stayed friends.  We enjoyed many times together when the girls were growing up.   Karen and Theresa are only 4 days apart in age.   What I remember the most of our times with the girls, was when they were both at Girl Scout Camp!  You girls know what I am talking about.   I had planned to meet Barbara and Theresa again this summer when I visited.  I will miss that.  I send my love to all of you!
