There They Sat

There they sat. Laughing until the tears rolled down their cheeks. All three of them. One sister could not even look at another without starting to laugh all over again.

It was actually a sad time in their lives. Their mother had passed away. The funeral had taken place and the three of them were now sitting together in their mom’s home.

There were eighty three years of photographs spread out in front of them. Memories on paper. School pictures, family vacations and birthday dinners forgotten until now.

What the heck is on Joey’s head! A line from a modern song was materializing in front of them as they looked at silly toys and costumes from their past.

There they sat. Laughing until the tears rolled down their cheeks. Memories on paper. Events forgotten until now.

Great story. I have a feeling I know who the three sisters are, which makes it even more relatable and personable.
