Camping Combs

Mary & Me ~ lil monkey's in a tree!
Oh Mary..... I have so many memories! Mom tells me how happy I was when you were born. She said I loved you and loved helping whenever I could. You were born to let me be your big sis. I get so sad when I think of the times we were seperated. First when you moved to Texas with Mom when mom & dad got divorced, then when I moved to Houston from San Antonio when I was 16 to live with our dad, when I went to college and never moved back home & then finally when I moved to New York when I was 29. So many times apart... but then I think of the wonderful times we WERE together. Those are the times I cherish. Those are the times I focus on.

We were so blessed to have each other!

So many memories are around the times when dad would take us camping or to his civil war re-enactments.

We were some camping fools :)!
Tent building, air raft blowing, beans & frank cooking, swimming, roasting smores and playing on the playground.
That's what I'm thinking about right now.... I loooooved being your big sis. Mainly because of your love you had for me. I miss you Mary!
