On a visit away to view my first grandchild born, I returned to find my 93 year old friend in hospital. I arrived there to visit her and held her hand in her passing. This emotional piece comes from the celebration of life to the sadness of death. The elderly arms surrounding the baby represent the love and wisdom which will be his legacy.
