We had to go to a funeral in Massachusetts on Thursday. M's mother passed away after she had a car accident last year, seemed to get so much better, and then she seemed to just fade away.
She was a very special lady, and I consider myself lucky to have met her.
She was well thought of by her neighbors, family and friends.
She was an amazing quilter, and if I ever make just one quilt as nice as one of hers, I will consider myself lucky.
As funerals go, this one was like the one for any close member in my family, everyone comes, celebrates the time together, and celebrates the life of the person that left us.
Truly the bitter-sweet.
