A fun memory I have of my sister is when I went to visit my sister and her family after their move to Sacramento. Marlene and Don took me for a tour of Fishermans Wharf and surrounding area in San Francisco. We were at the end of the waiting line for a cable car. She caught me in a day dreaming mode. She yells, "Shirley, stop the cable car, it is leaving us." I'm chasing this cable car and tourist were yelling at me as they thought I was trying to cut in front of them. Marlene was heaving with laughter; realizing she had pranked me I too began laughing. A tourist was still yelling, so, my 5'1" sister looked at him and says, "don't mess with us." He didn't say anything else but we were still laughing. I still chuckle when I recall this memory and my sister's playful spirit. I will forever love and miss her.
