Years ago when friends gathered at our house from different states for Deborah's graduation,they decided they enjoyed each other and wanted to reunite annually. so before we new it the little sisters and mothers were welcomed to join as well! how very wonderful,I thunk of the song we used to sing; "When your friends are my friends,and my friends are your friends,when we all will get together, how happy we'll be!"
