Hello ~ sister-leftbehind: I apologize for the long pause. I'd just been laid-off when I started posting and life has gotten busy again. However, I wish to say how much I appreciate your note & your story.

There remains this bizarre bubble

D Yoda / Theresasdaughter / didntwearshoeseither/leftbehind: I really appreciate you posting this info. My mother was in c.f. for maybe a decade. She would have gone by sister Maria, sister Alice or Alicia. Not sure, since I was only 2 when she joined. (I'm now 32). I'm told I was on the road w/her for a short period, maybe between '79 & '80?
