Family: Keeping close from afar

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published May 27, 2014 at 10:24 a.m.

When family members are apart, particularly when separated long term, there are days when a mere phone call won’t do, writes Katie Doherty in Family.

For Kashmere Farmer and her husband, Atarius, newlywed airmen who have stuck together through his-and-hers deployments to Qatar, nothing seals and reseals their bond like face-to-face contact, even if it’s filtered through the screen of a computer or mobile device.

After an engagement maintained largely through video chatting, their married days are punctuated by text messages to catch up, quick phone calls to coordinate a FaceTime or Skype video-chat session, lunchtime FaceTime confabs and post-workday video chats.

See Wednesday’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for more about using modern technology to keep close to loved ones who are far away.
