My Great Grandmother was given one of your Mothers house coats that she had made as a gift. She wore it till see passed away and my Grandmother regifted it to Great Grandmothers room mate in the nursing home. It provided alot of comfort to those that were lucky enough to wear it.
I believe your Mothers spirit came with the house coat by making those she gifted them too feel pretty and special.
She was a very special woman.
She is in a special place in heaven with the reciepance of her gifts
Bless you all.
