The End of an Era.

This is my Great-Grandmother Cecelia, she died this morning at the age of 102. Born in November 1907, she saw many changes in the world. She was the oldest girl of 16 children and lived to see 12 great-great grandchildren.

In this picture she is 3 months away from her 97th birthday. She looks pretty good doesn't she!? The last few years were hard. The last time I saw her, February 2009, I knew it would be my last. In a way I am relieved to see her go because it means her suffering has ended.

In the next few weeks there will be many stories of her long life recalled with fondness.
I hope to share them with you here.
