I know many of you found out through my friend Stephen that my Mother in Law passed away.
After the assault it was discovered she had ovarian cancer and it was too far advanced. She was in Hospice care at home when she passed away. She went through so much being severely beaten and loosing twin daughters to the same cancer, one was my first wife and the second died just 2 weeks ago, she was not able to attend the funeral.
She was born in England in 1931, I was intrigued by her stories about WWII. As a girl she remembered the bombings and dog fights in the sky over head, as kids they would run to find pieces which were shot off of fighting aircraft that they would see fall to the ground. She moved the the US in the late 60's with her husband and kids and they became US citizens. She was proud of her new country. She was always thinking of others. The night before her surgery (which the doctors said she probably would not make it through) she was weak and in pain however she wanted a birthday card to send to her friend who had a birthday coming up, which she got, I can still see her writing in the card and addressing it, I mailed it for her. I have never met anyone quite like her. She will be missed.
