I was so sorry to hear of the passing of "Sis". A truly lovely lady. My deepest sympathies to the Calkins Family and to all of those who were fortunate to call her friend. "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal." Such great memories of this wonderful lady and the many decades of friendship shared between the Calkins and McPartlin Families.
