Yesterday, November 11, 2011, my precious mother-in-law, Ada, made one last journey. She went Home to be with Jesus and her sweet husband, Bill. Ada was 87 years old. She lived a very long and fulfilling life. She was a homemaker. She raised 5 kids and worked the farm with Bill. She was the best cook in the whole world. I'm serious, there isn't anyone who could cook better than Ms. Ada. I wish I had taken more time to talk to her about cooking and a lot of other things. Why is it that we don't make the best use of the time we have with our loved ones? There are so many things that I wish I could ask her. My husband is the baby of the family. It's strange to think now that both of his parents are gone. It's a bit scary, really. I've often thought about what life would be like without our parents. It's like a huge security blanket has been pulled right out from under us. My mother is our only parent still living. I pray that we have many, many more years with her. I know we will see all of our parents again someday.
We love you, Ada. We will miss you every single day, for the rest of our lives.
