Visiting Mama’s Grave

My neighbor came over to see me today. Her mama died about 2 weeks ago and the whole family is still gobsmacked by her death. She was a healthy 82 year old woman. Sure she had some arthritis but all in all, she was fine. Peggy swam every day, took yoga classes and water color painting classes. She sang in the First Baptist Church choir every Sunday. She volunteered at the church library every Thursday morning. She lived next door to us for twenty years.
