My MIL & Lily's Flowers

Here's a card I made with the latest freebie from Imagine That! Progressive Challenge. If you would like to play along you can purchase this Digi, Lily's Flowers for $1 and then your next digi is free.
I didn't spend as much time on my card as I would have liked. My Mother-in-law passed away. I am so glad that I was able to be there to say good bye. She had been sick for quite a few years. I am sad to see her go. She was my other Mother. I didn't know anything about housekeeping, cooking, canning or living the country life, when I came to Nebraska after Steve and I were married. (I was born and raised in Denver.) She taught me just about everything I know. The funeral was very nice. A family friend/relative sang & played his guitar. My MIL loved the old Hymn's like The Old rugged Cross. Then a story was read that my Sis-in-law had found in a file. My MIL had written it back in the 50's, after she had been married for about 10 years. It was about how she struggled making pies & jelly. She had a wonderful sense of humor! Everyone was laughing! She would have loved that :) 
I will try to post that story soon, so that you can enjoy it too.
