Funeral

Unfortunately miracles don't always happen.  My mother-in-law passed away last Monday morning after a few rough weeks.  In the end she went very peacefully with her husband and I at her side.  Life has been turned upside down here and the last week has been filled with the wake, funeral, making the rounds to thank people, trying to sort out all the official things etc. etc. etc.  All family members have now left so my big job now is to clean the family house and make it an easy place for my father-in-law to live in.  
Hopefully regular blog entries will start again soon.....

  5. I'm very sorry for your loss, Jo. It was obvious from the way that you wrote how fond you are of your in-laws.
    I hope you take the time to take care of yourself in the coming weeks. One of my favourite expressions in Japanese: ご自愛ください。
