A Tribute to My "Other Mother"
Last Sunday, I lost one of the most precious people in my life. My mother-in-law passed away at the ripe old age of 92. In the 40+ years that I knew her, she never spoke a "cross" word to me. It may surprise some of you to know that not a word of disagreement ever came between us. We had a wonderful relationship and she always said I was her Daughter rather than an "in-law". She was a gentle, patient, kind woman who had gained a wealth of knowledge over her years with raising eleven children in very difficult times.
She was my mentor, confidant, teacher and most of all my Friend. I will miss her terribly.
Rest in Peace, MOTHER....
