As I was driving home from Libby's funeral in the rain, I was thinking these must be tears from heaven.  They were threatening snow, but thanks to Libby's warm personality, we only got rain.  My memories of Libby were that of a beautiful blond woman with a huge smile and kind word.  She was always busy, but still had time for a nice chat.  She was a gentle and loving soul.  I am glad to have had her in my life.
