Di, my big sister, who played with me, looked out for me constantly, and who shared our crazy Wendruff outlook on life with our baby sister, Jean (Djuna). Although we had lived apart for many decades, me in the UK with the US Air Force and Di at home in New Jersey, the pull of our common roots was always there. It is doubly sad that we lost her while I was seriously ill here in England with the virus.
Di, I always loved you and missed you wherever we were.
