At age 90 years and 2 months, my mother-in-law has passed away
She was in rapidly declining health for the last 4 months, and kept praying for God to come take her home. Her prayers have been answered tonight. We rarely saw eye to eye on anything political - she kept framed photos of Richard Nixon and loved Bill O'Reilly like a son - but that didn't make me love her any less. She was a good woman, who raised 4 sons to be outstanding men. I married her youngest 27 years ago (for which she never forgave me!) ;) We'll miss her. :cry:

3. Thank you for your kind words.
Not even close to perfect, but she also tolerated my "loony leftist" rants! Mostly, we agreed not to argue about politics, thank goodness.

8. We totally agree - and we're planning a great send off party.
Going through stacks and albums of pictures to make some great collages for the wake, and we're all looking forward to reconnecting with relatives and friends we haven't seen in ages - to honor Lorry.

Thanks Husb2Sparkly :hi:
