My mother in law passed away today. :(. I loved her dearly.  She was so full of grace, compassion, positivity.  She changed my life for the better.  She raised the man I love.  She was 94 and had been ailing the last month. It hurts so much.  She treated me better than my mother ever did.  My husband has been through so much this past year.  My sudden cardiac arrests last year, my four months in hospital, my difficult recovery, the kids diagnoses was all been so hard on him.  Now his Mom dies.  And my kids have lost grandma Lilly. 

My first completed scrap album was of Lilly. I stole her Christmas card list and sent a letter to everyone asking for a story or pictures of her. I expected a few back. I got something like 65 out of 70 letters. It goes to show what a person she was.

How wonderful that you were able to make that album for her and that your children had a chance to get to know their grandmother. I know it hurts more when someone that old dies because they have been around longer than anyone can remember. (A wise rabbi said that when my grandmother died). She lived a full life isn't always the most comforting words if she shared that full life with others.

Condolences to you and your family.
