Artist: Tineswari Maruthamuthu (this was a birthday gift from a talented artist friend of mine)
My Great Aunt passed away last night - strength is a word I would use to describe her - she raised 5 children by herself mostly during hard years and then she defied all odds living as long as she did after major heart surgery nearly 20years ago. She was a very spiritual lady too and well loved by all her family and friends. She gave a lot and was passionate about animal rights and theosophy. May she rest in peace.
