This is slightly off my usual topic of gardening, but I need to do this.
My dear sister-in-law, Mary..or Maimie…. as I knew her as..passed away last Friday.
She lived in Boston,Mass.U.S.A, since she was 17 years old, but came back home on holidays many times.
She had been suffering and she really hoped she would not linger too long. She had said her goodbyes to us last week. Just last year she and her husband Joe had been back here on holidays and loved what I have done to the garden. Where I live here with Mary’s brother is their homeplace, so I am the custodian of the Garden
Mary saw the peas I grow and took one straight away and even ate the pod….! Their Dad always grew veggies here in the old days, so she would be well use to fresh veggies.
Maimie’s ashes will be coming home to rest with her sister,Rita, in our/their garden where they spent there childhood.
I now call it The Garden of Remembrance.
Under her Dad’s Holly Bush and My Weeping Willow. We will always have the “Girls” with us when we garden now.
Rest Now, Mary. You are with your Mam,Dad, and sister Rita.
