Grief

Aunt Martha was so in love with Uncle Ray.  Though she suffered from many physical problems she cared for him at home until he was too frail for her to handle.  The picture in the casket was one she had made just for Uncle Ray.  Though they were the only copies she would not allow any of the family to keep them.  "I had them made for him and they are to stay with him" was her answer to any who asked.   Her life would go on but never quit the same.  Such a burning love, such deep grief.

- death's veil withholding
