An Update And A Laugh

I needed to post something funny. I'm so grateful I didn't have a "marie" for a mother-in-law.

You all know that I love my MIL, and we could always laugh about things. I think she would have loved this, so in honor of her and to post something funny, I'm posting one of my favorite scenes from this great show.

I will be picking up Allan at the airport later this afternoon. We will drive down to Utah again on Monday and my MIL's funeral will be held on Saturday. All of our children and grandchildren will be there as we celebrate the life of this fantastic woman.

Thank you all for your love and support.

I told my daughter about your MIL parasailing at age 90 and she was very impressed. She said, "She must have been a great lady!"
