I Know How Ruth Feels

I have really been fortunate to have the mother-in-law that I do. She is very interested in a lot of different things. Last week she asked if I'd like to go with her and we spent time at the beach and visited with friends from long ago in World War II.

She is very generous and supportive to her children, spouses of children and loves her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I've been to the Caribbean, Italy, France, Spain, Hawaii, Yellowstone, and various California beaches etc. because she takes her children (and spouses) to great ports of call and fabulous reunions. This time it was just her and I in Monterey having fun on the beach and traveling up and down California!

The love she pours out is unwavering and always encouraging.

These men have been friends since they were in their late teens and early twenties, and Beverly has the same loyalty and fidelity that she extends to her family too. Was it bred in that generation? It has been marvelous to be a part of her life and family unit.

If Duke had lived they would have had 63 great years. She holds us all in heart and we love her dearly.
