Rest in Peace: MIL


Some of you know that my mother-in-law was seriously ill for the last couple of months. She seemed to be getting better last month, but unfortunately, it was short-lived. She slipped into a coma and passed away on Oct 30th.

We are all trying to come to terms with the loss and focus on completing all the formalities that are associated with death, and get on with our lives.

I was looking for a photo of hers and came across this one taken a couple of years ago. Because of her ill-health (she hasn’t been in good form for many years now), she was not always cheerful, but the snubnose could always elicit smiles and laughter from her with all her silly pranks.

Editing this post to add a pic of them with the piglet as well. Such a shame that he couldn’t enjoy more time with her. She was a wonderful and loving grandmother, and the kids were the apples of her eyes.

And here's a photo of my in-laws with the piglet
