We spent today on this boat:
with these people called Mary and Frank Russell:
Frank worked with Nancy’s dad
and quickly became like a part of the Chambers family.
He knows Nancy,
though he’s not seen her in a while.
I hope that changes one day soon.
It was a day spent leisurely swapping stories, remembering when.
chortling and loving,
relishing being together again
after at least 10 years.
I don’t know when I’ve been so relaxed, so sated.
She is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.
Go here to start at the beginning.
