There are a lot of jokes about in-laws, but I’ve never needed the humor because I married into the absolute best family ever.

For an only child from the Northeast to marry a young man from Kansas who had eight living siblings was a dream come true. My mother and father-in-law were both the absolute best. They were role models on how there was always plenty of love and understanding to go around.

We’ve been married a long time, have outlived my in-laws, one brother and one sister in-law, and the rest of us are all getting up there in years. That happens if you are lucky enough to live a long life. 🙂

This year one of my brothers-in-law fought successful battles with both open-heart surgery and bladder cancer. It wasn’t an easy fight, the moving forward has been a challenge, but he’s with us and his quality of life is good.
