She  was sweet woman who loved her family very much.  I knew her for 20 years and never heard a mean word come from her.  At the home, she took great pleasure in watching the birds feed outside her window. While she hesitated to talk about her war experience, bits and pieces of information would come out occasionally.  She provided a great service to her native England during the war, and was very lucky to have made it out alive.  Thank you mom for letting me get to know you.
