This is a hard blog to write- my Mother in law died yesterday. I lost my own mother in 91' and she has been my mother in law since 95' and so now I have lost two mothers. It is much harder on my husband as it is his Mother. Death is never easy on the living. I know that my mother in law is no longer in pain..that I do appreciate. But I will always miss and love her.
When my Husband & I first got married...if he was ever out of line ( it was often) I would always tell him "I'm going to call Mom" and I did alot of times. She would let him know when he was wrong about anything...not just side with him. She was also on my side...she would listen and she would talk to him alot of times to him on my behalf. She was a good mother in law.
We have know for at least a week that it wouldn't be long- Mom was a diabetic..and had to do dialysis for about the last 10 years. She has the last few years gotten way older and frail. And it was getting to be very hard on her body. Then recently she fell and broke her knee cap and things went down hill after that. She made the decision to stop her dialysis....and the family all knew it was a matter of time. But Mom was tired and we all have/had to respect her wishes.
She like my own birth Mother will always be loved and missed. Love you Mom Sherill.
