2 Months Ago

Well 2 months ago Monday my mother-in-law passed away.

She was a wonderful lady. Always made me feel a part of the family, not the"daughter-in-law".
A quiet, gentle, smart woman who loved to watch and talk sports. She loved the Oregon State Beavers and Nebraska Corn Huskers. After she retired she would watch lots of ESPN. My son, husband and her could sit for hours talking about all types of sports. Their favorite sports, football and baseball.
A widow for 40 years, she wore her wedding ring until the day she was cremated. Her ring is still with her ashes in the beautiful wind chime urn hanging in her daughters house.

20 days after she died and got back her ashes back, we decided to go to the coast and scatter some of the ashes. It was a nice way to say good-bye and know she would have loved it.

We miss you mom!!
