44: Mom, I love that even if we were not related we would still be best of friends. We like to sip coffee and share stories. We enjoy old towns, old architecture, and old books. We enjoy gardening, history, and even European sports cars! I love that you always understood what I didn't say as a child and you were never quick to judge. You read us books and played the piano to lullaby us to sleep. I love remembering that when we were left with one parent you kept us together , safe at home, even though you worked late into the night. You kept our self worth intact. Even today I wish you lived in a cottage next to mine. Just so you would stop by in the morning for coffee and a walk in the garden with your grandchildren. Happy 70th Birthday, Mom!

50: Our Favorite Memories of You | Taking walks with me while I rode my tricycle around the neighborhood at the blue house. -Ethan | Trying out new recipes after watching Food Network:) -Dora | We met on 3 Wolfson back in '68 or '69. We called each other Mrs. Rutledge & Mrs. Brank, as was the custom of that day on the units. However we had a hard time getting out of the habit when we socialized with our husbands. They laughed about our formality! But we grew to be close fiends over the years, & have shared so much of each others' lives... deaths, losses, divorces, travel, food, laughter, family... - Peggy | You taking us to Sea World when we were young kids. -Bret | You rushing me to the hospital after falling out of your tree and breaking my arm. You were so concerned, but you made me feel safe even though I was in immense pain. - Bret | You serving us Thanksgiving dinner in your Morning Dove home -Rachel

51: My Sister, My Friend by Sam It used to be that we could not stand to be apart. But now we are older and our lives have new starts. You have your kids and I have one too. But there is not a day that I don't think of you. I set and remember all the fun in the past. And I pray everyday that my memories will last. We have been through such hard times, first loves and jobs galore. Sister with you in my life I am never ever bored. We shared our clothes and even our friends. We would cry on each other when our hearts would not mend. Sometimes I wonder if I was not a twin. But then I would not have known my very best friend. We were made into two by Gods hands from above. What a blessing you were, a sister to love. Our lives are now hectic and time goes by fast. But I know our friendship will always outlast. So today I wanted to tell you what has been on my mind. You are my sister, my friend, we are two of a kind.
