I won't write much on my thoughts on the events of the past couple of weeks proceeding from the death of my mother in law. I am told I am an unusual son- in lawI must say that I have been a student of this woman for over thirty years, from the first time I drove down that driveway to meet her before I married her daughter. She taught me a lot about life and living. I even recorded hundreds of hours of her stories, but none of them were as instructive as having the privilege to help my wife take care of her Mom in her last months on earth. In this, she taught me much about dying as well. I pray I will face my own dying with as much tenacity mixed with grace as what she exhibited.
