The image that I will always clearly recall is that of the two girls, cousins by birth yet best friends and sisters out of love, diving into the pool on a mission of great importance: that of rescuers in pursuit of the lesser critters of nature whose misfortune it was to have landed so precariously in the waters of our backyard pool.
Upon spotting a cricket or a beetle being conveyed on a leaf in the direction of the swirling waters of the filter basket, Casey and Jamie, a stalwart team of determined young minds, would utter an almost synchronized squeal and plunge into the often chilling waters on their quest.
With glee and in utter excitement, their mission was accomplished! Good job girls.
I miss you terribly, sweet Casey.
