I called my Mother in law “Mom” as she was the Best Mother in Law I ever had. She loved to go to the casinos and she was pretty lucky most of the time. One of the funniest times was when Jon drove Cousin Lorrie, myself and Mom to New Orleans to celebrate her 80th Birthday! What a fabulous time she had. The hotel had arranged for a beautiful Birthday cake and champagne for us, what a nice trip it turned out to be. We went on several trips all of us, she loved it including a cruise one year. I miss chatting with Mom, my dear Mother in law.
XOXO
Dana
