Mother-In-Law (me singing like the Coasters)

Marie is 85 years old. She is very active in church and family life. She is always on the go. When she is not going she is either dragging limbs and debris to the trash pile (she lives on 5 acres) or reading. Anna has, in the past several years, got her interested in reading novels.
Marie files everything. If you mention you read an interesting article about a certain local person there is a good chance she has a file on that person. She has a huge number of photos and on each photo she insists on putting a short biography of each person. If you took a roll of film of two people and give her all the prints. Next week when you drop by every print will have the same biographical sketch, like date of birth, child of, death (if so), sibling of, spouse of, and so on.

She is a perfectionist, which some people consider a curse.

My mother-in-law was the most wonderful M-I-L a person could have. This is our first mother's day without her. It's hard for us all, hardest on Steve.

Mr. kenju calls me "Miss Perfect" and he definitely thinks it is a curse!!

She's a pretty lady, Eddie. Hope you and your family have a great Mother's Day.

Thank you.
We, the boys, and Marie will be trying out a new Italian Restaurant in town.
And I hope you have a great Mother's Day also, I know you deserve it.
