The past few weeks have been quite difficult as my mother-in-law had her final days on earth. My husband's sister came over from Australia, and his brother from So. California, to be with her.
The funeral was just the way she wanted it to be. We were blessed that our son was able to celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial. My MIL was very religious and was so happy when she knew our son was studying to become a priest. Unfortunately her mild dementia prevented her from fully realizing that he had been ordained last year.
She is now with her Lord and maker and I know she is truly at peace.
The above card is one that I made to use to thank our family and friends for their kind words of support during this time.
