Angela, her sister, my sister and I had a band when we were in middle school. It was a band, and not a band. It didn't involve music and mostly entailed us jumping on the trampoline for hours. Since then, hours of letter writing, phone conversations and impromptu highway exit coffee meetings between cities have kept us close enough that now our little girls will call one another friends, too. Enough about us, though. This is Angela's daughter Emma Lu. Let's focus on her squish factor: it is second to none. How thankful am I for this friendship that is overflowing into the next generation!
