It was during a visit to a Cape Cod gallery in 2004 that Margaret first saw the work of Elizabeth Mumford. One painting's touching caption read: "I see the moon and the moon sees me, the moon sees somebody I want to see"...the painting returned home with the Metzlers to Mendham. But that’s not the end of the story. Margaret’s family, after seeing how moved she was by the artist's work, commissioned Elizabeth to create a special painting filled with memories of Julia’s life – Labor Day, the garden, swinging, and the love the family shared.
Julia's painting, used throughout this site, can be seen in its entirety here.
