In Memory...

This photo was taken this past November. This gathering was a celebration of my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. Dad surprised Mom by asking her to marry him again and of course she said yes! It was beautiful!
A few weeks later, Mom went to the hospital and without going into all the details, the doctors told us that if there was something she wanted to do and she felt up for it then do it. At years end she decided she felt good enough and wanted to go bad enough to go to their winter home in Donna, TX. Sadly she spent more time in the hospital and a rehab facility than spending it playing train and going out to dinner with their friends. The decision was made to bring her home but it had to be by ambulance and she had to go to a nursing home. They arrived home last Friday and no sooner got her to her room that they sent her to the hospital. It has been a very sad week. Mom gave up her fight Monday evening.... as much as I wish that she could be with us forever, she was a very sick woman for a long time and how selfish would it be of me to want to keep her here forever in that state. She is now pain free and at peace.
I was SO BLESSED to have her not only as my mother-in-law but as a friend and I will miss her so much.

I know you will all miss her terribly. Life will be a little different for you. Speaking from experience, the pain get better with time. We are thinking of you all.
