Do you remember..........?

Tamarisk (taken at night)
Finally a dry day today and I decided I'd better mow while I could.  As I sat on the mower I observed how things were growing.  In my front yard, I have a tamarisk tree which is covered in tiny pink blooms right now. The only reason I have it is because my paternal grandparents had one in their yard and I always liked it. As I was thinking about it I wondered if my siblings remembered Grandma's tree.  I know my younger sister probably doesn't and my brothers probably do. Then I wondered about my other sister Pam who's been gone for over 3 years now and I realized one of the things I miss the most.  She's not here to ask, "Do you remember.....?" "Do you remember wading in the creek in Arkansas?"  "Do you remembr the big family reunions?"  "Do you remember when we went to the beach and threw Ritz crackers to the seagulls?"  "Do you remember all the late nights we chatted online after everyone else had gone to bed?" I do. I remember all this and so much more.  Miss you Pam.
