Passing By.

Husband E has been in the U.K. and left home last Saturday afternoon. His Aunt only has hours left now as she has liver cancer. Three weeks ago she was tending to her garden and caring for a friend. She has lead a rich life and knows that her next stop is heaven.

We have been thinking of all the lovely times spent with her as we stayed with her in England and she has come out here (her country of birth) often. The Lake house is hers and is her favourite place.

A year and a bit ago, we celebrated her 80th birthday. Much fun, with purple everywhere. She died her hair purple for the occasion and painted her finger nails purple.

Her neighbours in England have been so wonderful and have helped all our family who have gone to be with her.

A fine tribute and stores of memories. I love the "purple everywhere".

I will offer prayers for your husband and family.
