A sad Goodbye

I have been very quiet in the blogging world...
A few weeks ago I had a call from my mother in law. She was talking about how happy she was that ray and i were together and telling me how wonderful hugh, my father in law is...
She spoke about the kids and how happy she was about our little family, well big family...
She spoke of her new reading glasses and how they will be wonderful because she is doing a lot of reading lately...
A week later my husband left for a week to visit his mum in another state..we in sydney, she in adelaide...
A day after he came back from his visit she was in hospital...the next day she was very unwell...
A few days later my mother in law passed away...
She was an artist, a wife, she was a grandmother a mother and adventurer who travelled half way around the world with her young family for a better life...she was caring and thoughtful,
and so much more...
She said goodbye to me on the phone a few weeks ago...
I never knew it would be her last time saying it to me....
goodbye raymond's mum...we'll all miss you...

Oh Mandy I am very sorry. Something very similar happened to me years ago. My Mother in law called on a Tuesday to tell me she was proud of me and loved me. She was dead by Friday...just 52 years old. She died of a brain anuerysim.

I am very sorry for your loss.
