Remember Up, the amazing Cartoon Pixar? To give inspiration to cartoon was the Lady Edith Macefield.
In 2006 Edith a construction magnate offered them a million dollars to buy hes house, because instead of that was to be built a shopping center, where are we? In Seattle. The tycoon was given a 2 of spades by Mrs. Edith, did not want to sell his house and told them that for her money was not as important as his home.
Edith was born in Oregon in 1921, he spent a large part of his life in England, where this fantastic donates took care of war orphans. In 1952 he returned to the United States because his mother fell ill, his mother passed away, and then Edith inherited the house.
To buy his house was offered them $ 1 million, but she said she wanted to die at his house, in his sofa as he died his elderly mother.
