Mrs. Hemrick was small in stature but had a big heart and strong will. From the first time we met I felt the love and acceptance she offered me as I became the "other woman" in the life of her only son. She loved to cook and took great joy in feeding those invited to her table. We shared a love for flowers and birds and she delighted in discussing the visitors to her feeders.
As she aged her physical abilities may have become more difficult but her mind and her ability to express her opinion did not. My favorite expression to describe her is "she was a little spit fire" and I love her and miss her.
