A wonderful Mother in-law that will live on in our hearts

Today I have some sad news to share.
My mother in-law who has been fighting her third bout of Cancer lost the fight last Friday morning. She had been staying with us for 3 and a half weeks prior to her last week spent in hospital. We are glad for this extra time we have had with her, but grateful for her not suffering with the illness for much longer, even though we will miss her greatly.
She was an amazing woman who tried to do so many things in life. This photo was from her recent trip to visit us in Perth. It is a great photo (which I have cropped) of her and my husband. I have been meaning to scrap it for ages, and have learnt a valuable lesson.... try not to put off the important things like these memories. I am thankful for the fact that this was only taken about 9 months ago, so at least those memories are still quite fresh in my mind.
