I met the woman who would become my mother-in-law 33 years ago. She died last year and I have traveled to honor her memory with the unveiling of her headstone tomorrow. I will forever be grateful to have known her – she treated me like a son from the moment I met her. She was a fiercely independent and highly intelligent woman who suffered no fools.
I loved her very much, and although I will always miss her, I feel so fortunate to have had her in my life for the time I did. I am a better man for it.
