Aside from phone calls, I usually use text message or email to keep in touch with family and friends. Occasionally, when we have a WiFi connection, I can initiate FaceTime calls if the recipient also has an iPhone. Our son in Hawaii arranges for video conferencing using a free app called Zoom.
Today we are back in Torrance after visiting our son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter over the weekend. No matter how enjoyable and wonderful it is to see our family and friends online, real HUGS and KISSES cannot be substituted. It is priceless.
