In Memory

My husband's mom passed away in mid August this year. Everything happened quickly, and I still feel like it's not possible she's gone. She was a "can-do" lady who went on an African safari at the age of 76.

In her lifetime, she raised and trained horses, and just last fall, she participated in a trail ride through the Shawnee National Forest.

She came to every theater performance, taught me everything I know about cooking, and will be missed a great deal. Last weekend, all six of her children, extended family and friends gathered for her memorial.

We love you, Weese.

What an inspiring person to have in your family! My MIL is like that too - at first I was intimidated by her, but now I only have admiration, much like you show here - I'm very sorry for your loss Jena.
