My sister Ilene was born when I was a teenager. I left home before we really had a chance to get acquainted. Thankfully, our adult lives allowed us to connect. She retired this past June from her career as home economics teacher and drama instructor. She packed her stuff and moved to New Jersey to be near her children.
