Just in case you are wondering how old is the hand, well, she is 90 years young. She is cute and absolutely loves the idea!

I just learned about the demise of my beloved model in the picture.

She passed away in her sleep on the 20, April 2009.

Foolish of me only to learn it today!

I should have known when I missed her appearance in recent months.

She was 92.

According to her daughter she complained of having fever, visited the Doctor twice, nothing was unusual. On the night of her demise, she told her daughter she was very tired and that she needed to lay down. Then to everyone surprise, she went peacefully around midnight without anyone's knowledge.
