Karen was the first person I ever met who used the phrase “cheek to jowl”. I was visiting Bill and Karen in Tampa and Karen and I were in the car talking about one thing or another. Somewhere in the conversation she uttered that phrase and I told her that I had never heard that before. She laughed and said, “Well, that’s the girl from the farm in Iowa in me.”

That was such a lovely visit. I enjoyed being with Bill and Karen in their house, out for dinner, sitting arond the pool, playing with the cats. It was all so easy and relaxed. It was like a little piece of heaven.

That is a memory I am going to hang onto.
