It was very therapeutic to paint on the night I heard of your passing. I dedicate that painting to you. Fittingly, it was of a cherry blossom tree. A tree which represents family. And you always represented family, as the matriarch. Each blossom represents your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It wasn't a masterpiece but you most definitely are. I feel blessed to have been your daughter in law. You always showed my children and I love. Your door and heart were always open for us. I am so grateful that I was able to give you a big kiss, hug and tell you I love you over Christmas. May you rest in eternal piece with your husband. All my love! - Yvonne
