Yesterday was a sad day for us as it was my mother in laws funeral. She passed away suddenly last week. She was always very kind to me and spoke to me affectionately. She was a good woman who like women of her generation had suffered hardship and given up much to make a new life for her family in a new country. The family grew and flourished under her guidance. The family tree branches spread from 7 children to 23 grand children to 27 great children and the number is still growing. She adored all her grand and great grand children. She had a half nelson technique that would be envied by any champion wrestler and the kids always wore the red lipstick kiss mark with pride.
A loving woman.
