MIL's Memorial yesterday

Sunday, July 16, 2017

My MIL passed away at the end of December just before her 98th birthday down in Georgia. Today was her memorial for family and friends in Michigan where she had lived most of her life. It was a beautiful celebration of the life of a kind, loving woman. I wish she had lived closer to us so I could have enjoyed more time getting to know her better. I would only see her 2-3 times a year because of the distance.

I heard many amusing stories of her life from my hubby and his 4 siblings. Laughter 😃and a few tears 😢were abundant. There will be two family reunions on hubby's side of the family the next 2 weekends and it will be strange with the matriarch of the family gone. I expect a few more tears as we gather again but the laughter will outweigh them.

Always remember to appreciate those you love ❤️, let them know it because no one knows what the future will bring.
