My mother in law passed away May 17, 2013. She would have been 94 in June. She certainly led a good and fascinating life, traveled in many countries and loved her 4 great grandchildren, her 2 grandsons and 2 wonderful great daughters in law. When you think about the life that these older citizens of our country have seen, the changes that have been made in the world since 1919, the year of her birth, it is amazing.

She was my MIL for 40 years, longer than my own mother who died at age 60, 34 years ago. We had our ups and downs like most would have but I always loved her and was very glad that she was my MIL. It will be a hard and busy week as we prepare for family to come and make arrangements. I will be busy. Thank you all for your prayers and concerns during the past few months and the time ahead.
