Hi Norma, did you lose your sister Mimi? I've been having difficulty in accessing the posts under "Devoted to You". I am sorry for the loss of your sister Mimi if she is no longer with you and know ...

Hi Catherine. Yes, my sister, Mimi, died back in 1985 at the age of 33 of a brain aneurysm. She had just been ill for a few days and even saw a doctor. We were completely shocked when she died in her sleep, just 2 days after seeing the doctor. People were really drawn to Mimi because of her spar...

I can't imagine losing a sibling at the ages the two of you lost yours. My mother did lose two boys within a few days after they were born, but I never met them. She gave birth to 12. I felt some guilt about the first one because I was hoping for a girl. I was born in the same year as Mimi and N...

Catherine, I never heard the expression "Irish twins" before, but I think that it's kind of cute. People often thought that we were actual twins because of our close resemblance and our similar height. Your mom must have been one incredible lady to have given birth to 12!

Looks like we have a few things in common in our past, Bridget. My mom actually gave birth to 5 children, but the youngest, a baby boy, born 6 years after Mimi and I died 2 days after birth. His birthday was on April 17th and my Mom said that he looked just like Mimi. I also have a brother who i...

Bridget, I was born in Chicago and spent the first 35 years of my life there. I've been living in a suburb just southwest of the city since then. I still love Chicago and enjoy visiting when I can, but boy, there are so many problems there with an increasingly escalating crime rate and corrupt pol...

That had extremely heartbreaking for your mothers to have lost babies as well. I remember how I felt when my children were babies/young children. I often think of my poor grandmother who witnessed her 8 year old daughter Catherine (who I was named after) get killed by a car. By the way, I would a...

I think Catherine is the Irish spelling. My grandfather (mother's father) came from Ireland. Are you Irish Bridget. I'm I mistaken or were you the one I read an article about on this site about meeting the Everly brothers on a train to Scotland when you were a teenager. I don't know how to use t...

Thanks Bridget. I thought you were the girl on the train and that was why the Everly's remained so kind to you when they saw you on tour. Most stars of their caliber would not be so attentive, especially reading your poetry etc. Did you follow them before their break-up in the 70's? We have sim...

Interesting that you are related to William Bradford. There was a man who used to come to our church with the last name of Bradford who loved to tell how he was descended from William Bradford. I'm glad your folks escaped the guillotine or I wouldn't be able to have vicarious memories of meeting t...
