Edward's Hat

Allied to the drawing of Roxie Neal, her mother and daughters with the recently deceased Edward, resurrected amidst them, I was asked to make a piece with his hat, in his memory. I was surprised when Roxie went into the house and produced the hat. At other funerals of legendary horsemen I'd witnessed the hat placed on top of the coffin to be interred. Here, the hat had been retrieved or kept and it was a privileged request to honour Edward with the assembled family.
