My beautiful mother in law passed away on Friday after a courageous battle with cancer. It was shocking and painful to lose her, even when we knew it was coming. I’ve been reflecting on being a part of her family for over 20 years. She has taught me much more than I think she’d ever know.
I was always astounded by the way she served anyone in need, without hesitation. She had a wonderful way of gathering ‘lost souls’. She’d bring them into her home and help them to feel loved and valued and that they belonged.
The meals we’d share were always wonderful. The food she’d cook was continuously delicious, and she’d always spend time to set a beautiful table with gorgeous centerpieces.
Her grandchildren felt loved, and knew she was always happy to see them, on any day we happened to stop by.
She was multi-talented! This woman could sew beautiful clothes and quilts, rewire the electric circuits in a wall, mud a wall, repair leaks, had the most beautiful flowers she cared for in her yard, grew a vegetable garden, canned fruit, washed and ironed the clean clothes, and kept a beautifully clean home.
I will miss her so very much! She was an inspired, faithful woman who blessed our lives beyond measure. I am a better person, truly because of her! 💔❤️ #untilwemeetagain
