A sad day at Belle, Book, and Candle. My sweet 99-year-old Aunt Polly died yesterday. She was a great reader and, in fact, was the person who long ago introduced me to the idea of keeping a list of the books I read.
She was a true Southern Belle. She raised the most fragrant roses and credited her success to the use of banana peels as fertilizer. She worked fine needlepoint and I am honored to have a few of the pieces she stitched.
I will miss her.
She was my father's sister and is the last of my parents' siblings.
I will be taking a few days off to be with family and will be back soon.
Sorry to hear that -- but 99 years: what an amazing life to celebrate. Thinking of you at a difficult time.ReplyDelete
