I just want everyone to know that there will be no post today. I was working on something this weekend about sex scandals, et al. but I will not be posting that, nor anything else this week. I have no funny in me right now.
My mother in law passed away this past weekend after months of hospital stays, rehabs, testing, MRIs, medications and family prayers. She finally let go of all the pain and struggles associated with this cold, dark world, and is at peace. Although I am not religious and am not sure I even believe in God or Heaven, if they do exist, she is up there right now, because she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most decent people I have ever met. I’m sure she would qualify for angel status immediately. She was a second mother to me and will be missed deeply by all that knew her.
Her and my Father in Law have lived with my family for the past 10 years in their own basement apartment. For years, I would send the boys downstairs to see their grandparents when I got home from work so that I could get dinner ready. She was a doting grandparent, with a kind and giving heart. She was always there when we needed her and was a loving presence in our home. My kids loved her so much and are going to miss getting squeezes by grandma the most. My heart aches for their loss as well.
She leaves behind her husband, 5 children, with 5 sons/daughters in law, 1 brother & sister in law, 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by all her family and everyone who knew her. She was a really special lady, and I loved her so much.
Rest in Peace, Pat. We miss you, but know that it was your time and you are finally at peace.
I will be out of commission this week with the arrangements and viewings/funeral and then thanksgiving, but will return next week with a post on monday, I hope. I will also catch up with all your posts at that time as well. Hope everyone has a happy holiday.
