Wildflowers for Grandmother's Grave

Jilda's last remaining aunt passed away recently and the family had the memorial service today. Aunt Betty had asked Jilda and I to play at her funeral and her daughter honored her wishes.

The ceremony was short and simple. The rain had moved off to the north, and the sun peeped down throught the clouds from time to time.

Before the service, I snapped a photograph of Aunty Betty's great grandaughter picking a bouquet of purple wildflowers for her grandmother's grave.
