I was very fortunate to have such a sweet, caring mother in law for 37 years. Your mom was a loving grandmother to all the children. She insisted on giving each and everyone of them her own thoughtful gift for birthdays and holidays. She made Don so happy and she brought our two families together. She will always be in our hearts....With much sadness...Paula
