My Sweet Mother-in-Law

This was the last picture I took of my mother-in-law. She was holding her newborn great-grandson. Mommy lived to hold her great-great-grandson in her arms last January. She was the sweetest woman I knew, my mother-in-law for twenty years. In all that time, we never had a disagreement. After my father-in-law's bypass surgery, they stayed in my house in Baltimore for 3 months. She and I cooked together in my tiny kitchen for 3 months and got along perfectly all the time, even though she was an experienced cook and I really wasn't.

My mother-in-law, Toby Lewis, passed away on Wednesday night, leaving behind over 100 descendents. May her memory be for a blessing.

So nice that you posted this about your mother-in-law. We should all have such good fortune to have such a mother-in-law and to speak about only good things at a time like this. You are all in our prayers,
Fondly, Etty and everyone at the Quilting Corner
