31 Days of Writing: Day Fifteen "Develop A Character"

Name: Edna Walters

Place of Birth: Burnaby, BC, Canada

Current Residence: Clearbrook, WA, USA

Age: 71 years old

Family: married to Jim Walters for 49 years; mother to James, Callie, and Ryan; grandmother to Lily and Arthur {James' children with his wife Julia}

Favorites: driving up to Canada for the weekend; having the grandchildren over to play; holding hands with Jim; family gatherings.

Edna loves her family and her ranch-style home. Home is where the family and the home-cooking are! Her relationships with her sons are strong; they both live in the area and visit often. But Edna's relationship with Callie is tenuous, although Edna can't quite define why.

Callie moved to Oregon when she was 19, then Nevada, and now resides in Wyoming. There is the feeling that Callie is distancing herself from something or someone, although no one in the family can guess what. There is no event or conversation that can be pinpointed as the fracturing point, and this causes Edna a great deal of stress and pain.

Jim and Edna's 50th anniversary is coming up, and as the Golden Date approaches, Edna worries her daughter is running farther and farther away from the family.
