Sepia Sisters

TWO sisters TWO real live angels!
angels sold, sorry

Who watches out for you? I have already posted that for me it is my two older sisters,
Sister Colleen is on the far left~ Aggie is the middle
beautiful aren't they?
I am still years from being born yet.

When I was a young girl, my sisters 15 & 16 years older than me, I went to see this movie
there were my two sisters on the screen, well not really...

You see my sister Colleen, shown here with her husband Richie,
were married when I was three.

Colleen always has a smile and beautiful oval face with curly dark hair.
Yet, she reminds me of the blond in the movie. Yes, blonde.

Colleen & Richie just celebrated their
50th Wedding Anniversary!

To the right is my sister Aggie, who was the maid of honor. She has on the original
veil from the wedding. Colleen's I made for the party. Will share more of the celebration later...

Aggie was once a nun
a wonderful school teacher
and always is a great sis...

she has quite a sense of humor
a bit mischievous even

and still wears her hair short...

I remember when I was about 6 my parents brought
my twin brother and I to see Aggie at college in New York,
Ag and the girls where having a party for a girl just engaged in her dorm
toilet paper was strewn everywhere the eye could see
a white cloud that I will never forget!

So fitting that when my sister Aggie got up to give the toast at
Colleen and Richie's anniversary party
she rolled out a roll of toilet paper and said

" let me list all the many reasons that makes
C & R's relationship so special..."

AM I LUCKY , for sure.
