Emotions Run High

Brother and sister reuniting after family feud are just one happy story at the airport.

Holidays, for most of us, are a time to bring the family together.

For Bob Morrison, Tuesday was a day to get back in touch with a sibling he lost touch with nearly a decade ago.

Sitting at the Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, Morrison anxiously awaited his sister Sue's arrival.

After eight years, he wasn't certain he'd recognize her.

"At first I'm thinking I don't even remember who she is really. We never talk on the phone or anything," Morrison said.

That was, until Sue called to say she would be coming home for thanksgiving.

"She even said I love you, and I thought, well, that's really nice."

Eight years ago, a family feud split the siblings apart.

Finally, Sue arrived to the gate. Bob opened his arms, "Hi Sis", he said as he grabbed her and pulled her into a tight hug.

"I missed you," she said.

Whether months or years, they say love wipes out all sense of time; masking all memory of a beginning, and all fear of an end.
