Diane,- may happy memories of fun times help you thru this difficult time.
Take care, Josie
I remember my first year of marriage to David (Arlene's son). We were getting settled in our new home. Often we would go to his parent's home for dinners and small get togethers. On one of these evenings Arlene leaned to me and said, "If I ever act like a Mother-in-law you let me know!". And after 40 wonderful years I can proudly say I always felt like family and she always treated me with the love and care of a daughter.
