Thank you, Kathy - I find that imagery both lovely and comforting. As my mother is dying, she is, in fact, getting ready for a splendid party, and one where she will be the guest of honor as my father, her brother, her parents, and other friends and family who have gone before greet her. And part of that preparation is the fitting of her "saintly robes."
Lovely, lovely, lovely . . .
