Saying good bye, in my own way...

I just got the call... My lovely mother-in-law is gone... I will miss her dearly. She's the closest to a mom that I've had since my mom passed in 1993. They were very much alike and would have been close in age. Both were creative souls and wonderful artists. One of Edna's paintings (that she had painted for her MIL) sits in my China cabinet with many of my treasured possessions... heirlooms passed down through generations... my mom's vintage ladies' head vases... my most prized teapots... I felt honored that she gave it to me when "Grandma Pearl" passed on. So, it takes it's place among my memories....
Godspeed lovely Edna...
