|September 9, 1915 - November 26, 2010|
There was a funeral service in Cambridge today.
One I was unable to attend.
My Aunt Belle.
Mary Isabelle Wilkinson Mowbray.
A woman I loved.
A woman I'll miss.
A woman who nurtured my love for reading, and my love for books.
A woman who always told me how smart I was, how pretty I was, and made me believe I could do anything - achieve any goal. She would always, always smile and throw open her arms when she saw me coming. She was magic and kindness. And gentleness.
She was the last of my Wilkinson aunts and uncles. A loving, hugging, laughing, fun loving family. They left me with memories I'll hold dear in my heart forever.
