Thank you for all the good wishes everyone. We think we have foundthe
right home for Emily, it is a purpose built residence for dementiabathroom)
sufferers. She will have a small suite (bedroom, sitting room,
and dd and sil will take some of her furniture and bric a brac, tvetc.
from her home. They also have lots of stimulating activites, foodsettles
choices, trips etc., plus hairdresser and chiropodist who come in
regularly. Of course, this is just the beginning. After Emily
in, her house will have to be cleared and made ready for the market,not
then sold. The lawyers tell me probate will be easy for her husband,
but as she is not competent to handle her affairs it will take AGES to
sort that out.
The sewing machine really is a beauty, it comes in a closed cabinet,
just a frame or table. No way could she take that with her. DD tellsaccessories
me sil is having a ball with the new toy, trying out all the
and feet. It even comes with a zigzag attachment.
Now, does anyone have time to look up this machine for me and find out
when and where it was made?

Was sorry to hear of your poor aunt's trials, but happy things are
working out well for you and the family. Your DD and SIL are truly a
blessing! Am keeping you and yours in my prayers!
Clearing house and sorting estate matters while slightly better than the
Court of Chancery of "Bleak House", by some accounts it is only just so.
Patience and fortitude will see you through.
Now about that sewing machine. What a great find, and in the family
(where I agree with you it should remain), so many happy memories, if
that machine could talk!
