Emotional week

March 23rd, 2014 at 06:47 pm

This week will be a very emotional week for our family as we say our last goodbyes to a wonderful, kind, compassionate and virtuous woman, my mother-in-law. It's been so difficult for me to comfort my husband and my sons whom loved their grandmother to pieces. She is being lay to rest in a mausoleum closed to her own parents. The bulk of her funeral arrangements are covered by her savings with each of her children chipping in $400 per family to cover the mausoleum. She had nine children. My husband and I also hosted the family for pizza, antipasto salad and beverages to honor her memory and to be together during this very difficult time. I already had plenty of 2 litter sodas stored at the house from previous get togethers and the cost of the pizza and salad came to $130. Thank God, we have the means to contribute because quite frankly, she deserved nothing but the best. I understood early in our marriage why my hubby loved his Mom. In my eyes, he was the best son a mom could ever asked for.

Please keep us in our prayers and thoughts.
