I could not have asked for a more beautiful mother in-law. She was kind, loving and accepting of all. She always had a smile, her laughter was genuine and loved the simple things in life. Even as dementia crept in, these ingrained qualities rose to the surface.
She enjoyed animal videos and sitting peacefully outside in the garden with the dogs at her side.
I was fortunate to be a part of her life and can honestly say she was one of the most beautiful women I have ever known. God bless you Herta and see you when I get home.
