I knew them all, and always looked for common personality traits, mannerisms and things in their appearance that were similiar to my mother. They would have loved callmesister.com. They were separated by time and space, but when they got together I remember a lot of laughter. My mother never heard her mother’s voice over the phone. She learned of her sister’s passing by telegram weeks later. She was closest physically and emotionally to the sister just older-their husbands liked each other and after many, many gatherings of cousins through the years, they traveled as couples when they finally had the time and resources. I will always think of my mother and her sisters as examples of what sisters do for each other-they really would have loved being virtually connected-oblivious to time and space-they would have loved being iSissies.
