13. Sorry about that. I don't want to use her first name and didn't know what else to say.
This is my stepson's wife. I dashed off that message in a hurry. No one in the family has been told about this.

Just to underscore your point, my grandmother used to call her daughter-in-law "Hey, you." No first name and no title.

They are both dead now but it still is a sore point when I remember it.

I am nobody's daughter-in-law now. All my "mothers" whom I cared about and called "Mother" or "Nana" are gone.
