Unexpected passing of mother-in-law

Hello to earthly angels and those above.

My mother-in-law went to heaven on Friday evening. She was a busy care-giver to her husband and anyone else in her circle who ever needed her. She put off taking care of herself and it has now cost us all dearly.

My DH had chest pains all Friday nite after we heard the news, but is doing better now. We drove back to his hometown for the wake and funeral. He and his sister have been estranged for 15 years. It took both their brothers to get her to let all four of them stand together at the casket, crying together, sharing memories, honoring their mom.

I'm so sad for our loss, but also happy for her because I know she is finally reunited with her own mother who died when she was a small child. And all the other loved ones who've passed in between. It's the holidays. They must have needed someone in heaven who loves to cook Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

I'll write her a tribute and post it later.

Love and holiday hugs to all,
