“This was your grandma’s bridal dress, that was passed onto me during my wedding to your dad”, said Mrs. Walter, admiringly looking at the gorgeous white laced dress, that she held out to her daughter.
“It’s beautiful” replied Tina, running her fingers through the delicate, smooth silk encompassing intricate designs.
“It’s yours now, but let me first repair the frayed edges with a new lace”.
“Don’t worry Mom; I love it the way it is”.
“It is the only cherished gift of grandma that I have now”, exclaimed Tina, as she kissed it and held it against her heart.
Mrs. Walter pulled Tina closer and kissed her forehead saying “Grandma will be smiling in heaven”.
