This past month has brought some bitter with the sweet.  I posted a picture of John.  He had a birthday right before Thanksgiving.  My niece Lisa had a new baby.  Little Daisy Darling is so cute! I also had another birthday. I am always thankful for another one but I think I am in denial of my age. Time goes so quickly.

My ex-mother-in-law passed away last week.  She was 90. Bob and I would visit her in the nursing home when we visited Lafayette. She was the Grand-mother to my children. She loved gardening in her younger years, made delicious homemade noodles and had many homemaking talents.  She was a happy, up beat person.  RIP  Martha, you will be missed.

Our son-in-law Brent lost his Mom last week also.  Jill was only 62.  She had brain cancer and passed away unexpectedly with complications from the chemo. For several years we would see Jill at family events and sometimes with Brent and Angie.  But, it wasn't until she became very ill we got to really know her.  She was incredible with her fight to win the battle with brain cancer.  She had a cheerful attitude even when we knew she was not feeling well.  Bob and I visited her for many times while she was in the hospital and nursing home.  We just kind of hung out for hours.  We had a lot of laughs and even made some plans for when she would finish her treatment.  We are still in shock and feel so sad about her passing. There are no words to how bad we feel for Brent and Angie. I am happy though, we had the chance to get to really know her.  RIP Jill.
