There are some people in your life who you will always remember so well and so fondly - Mrs. Cromwell was one of those people.
Mary and Bob were great friends of our parents, Shirley and Eph. We have pictures of them as crazy kids - with joy in their hearts and smiles on their faces. Mrs. Cromwell was in the wedding party of my parents and I look at her picture everyday on my mantle.
She was famous for sending us $5 every year for our birthdays. I do think somewhere along the line, we got a raise - to $10.
What is important in this story, is that for years after the death of our parents, LONG into adulthood - we could always count on a birthday card with a little cash in it from Mrs. Cromwell. She remembered us, I know for sure, because she loved our parents and wanted us to fee special - without them.
I can honestly say, I loved her. It brings tears to my eyes and sadness to my heart to think of her gone. However, I know that she will be greeted by two old friends who will welcome her to the life everlasting.
Rest in eternal peace Mrs. Cromwell - you will never be forgotten by the Van Tassell kids.
