It's good to touch base with family - extended though they may be. I have a cousin who lives in Ohio. Her husband, who is fearful of flying, conducts business here. As a result, they drive in every few years and we meet for dinner and a visit. We stay in touch by e-mail and now and then by phone, but the visits which punctuate the time are what keep us close. Her mother and mine were sisters. My mother died in 1967. Her's over twenty years later. Mine of cancer. Her's from complications brought on by Alzheimer's.
