Nick's mom passed away last night, one day before her 93rd birthday. The family was gathering last night at the nursing home to have a birthday dinner with her. Nick had stopped by to see her earlier in the afternoon and they talked a little. Nick's sister came with my father-in-law about a half hour before Nick's mom passed away. They had been married for over seventy years.
We all know it's for the best, but it's hard. She was my mother-in-law for thirty-four years and I couldn't possible have had a better one. All she ever wanted to do was take care of her family. She was a lovely, sweet woman and she'll be greatly missed.
