Mom Upton

Today I lost a very special lady in my life. She has been a part of my life for 41 years and one of the sweetest ladies I know. She passed away early this morning at the age of 91. Her birthday would have been at the end of the month. She got what she wanted, which was to be at home when she passed away. I will greatly miss her and her kind heart and loving hands. This is my ex-MIL and not very many people can say how wonderful their ex-MIL's are but God was truly wonderful by giving me her for so many years. She always supported me and never turned her back on me. A Christmas never went by that she wasn't at my house. She will be greatly missed. Thank you mom for all you taught me.
