My mother in law passed away last week. Well not actually my mother in law technically anymore since she was my ex-husband’s mom, but I thought of her as partly mine anyway and most certainly as Grandma to our kids.

I think that life was very hard on you, and certainly you were ripped off from living to a ripe old age and enjoying any golden years. You certainly survived more than what I would consider to be your fair share of heart break and anguish. But I think that you were one of those people who truly lived your journey for a time. You were not simply racing toward the end; you went places and did things, worked hard, loved well and completely, protected your children and grandchildren. Be at peace Grandma, and be comforted by knowing that you were—and are—loved.

What a lovely tribute to Gwen. I also pray that she is at peace now.
