Petit Odile Charming Winner

So sorry for the delay in the result but yesterday I attended a memorial service for a very special mother/grandmother. Although there were tears, her lifetime of following Christ meant that the service was more a celebration of her life and legacy left for others. Three of her grandchildren composed, played and sang a wonderful song about her that she wanted them to play for everyone. It was perfect. 

I will miss her and her offers of a cup of tea with a freshly baked jam drop. But I rejoice in the fact that she is probably right now enjoying the same with her late husband around a heavenly kitchen table.
