Default My mother-in-law

My mother-in-law passed away in her sleep early Saturday morning. She and my wife's father accepted me into their family immediately and I loved her very much. With all the mother-in-law jokes you hear, mine was the exception. Even though she wasn't thrilled with the tattoos and the motorcycles, her concern was always delivered as more of a joke than a reprimand. She let me know she cared and at the same time she let me know that she knew I was going to do whatever I wanted anyway and she respected that.

I hope that when it's all said and done I'll be half the husband/man my father in law was/is.

I'm really gonna miss her.

Chuck,

So sorry to hear about your MIL. I too had a great MIL and could not relate to terror stories you always hear. She was a dear, dear lady and I still miss her.

My sincere condolences to you and your wife.

Mel

Sorry for your loss. But I do know what you mean, My mother-in-law means the world to me. She is one of the best, and she treats me like one of her own kids. It's not the one who die's that suffers, its the one's left behind. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
