Today is a Great Day to Reconnect

Over Memorial Day weekend I was able to reconnect with someone from high school. I hadn’t seen him since the ‘80s, and it was fun to catch up. At some point in our trip down memory lane, I asked him about his only sibling, his sister. The mood went from light to serious as he... Continue Reading →
