RIP My Dear Mother in Law


43 years ago this lovely grandma took in a very neglected little boy. She had already raised her own children and was settling in on grandmotherhood. For the first four months of his life she made sure he had the milk he needed. Coming to learn he never received the love and care he deserved, Petey and she took in Bobby. For the next 18 years she made sure he was well cared for. They instilled in him the values that have made made him the wonderful son, husband and father he is today.

When I first met him she had to make sure my family was one her son deserved. Asking many questions of me. I guess I passed because she always spoke highly of my family. She would always share a recipe, some parenting skills, and always had time to sit and chat about the days events, a story from long ago, or what to plant in the garden that day (Titus 2).

I am so grateful to have had the chance to thank her for raising Bobby up into the fine man he is. Thank you for never letting him suffer and taking him in as a helpless infant and guiding him to be the God intended him to be.. Thank you my dear mother in law for being such a beautiful lady. I know you are where you need to be holding Helen and Bob and being with Petey after all these years. I will miss you.
