    Oct 16, 2010, 5:46 PM - Mother-in-law passed away :( #1

    I don't tend to share stuff that's very personal on the boards, but I wanted to mention that this evening marks one week since my wife's mom, Mrs. Georgie Compton, passed away.
    She was 81 years old and died from complications arising from renal/liver failure. The official cause of death was heart failure from gross imbalances in her blood chemistry.
    She was a very sweet, loving woman who welcomed me into their family from the moment my wife and I told her parents we intended to get married. I always hear the mother-in-law horror stories and I know that I was lucky because none of that ever applied to me.
    She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Cecil Compton, and daughters Mariah (my wife), Lisa, and Debbie. We attended the funeral service on Thursday afternoon and Georgie now rests in a very peaceful cemetery at a rural church near their home.
    My wife has had her ups and downs during the past week, mostly worried about how her father is doing, since he has some minor heart issues as well. He was devestated at the viewing on Wednesday evening, but seemed a little better at the service on Thursday.

    Take care, everyone.
    Eric

    Sincerest condolences to you and you'r wife,not to sound insensitive or like a jerk and i don't mean to be mean and disrespectful at all i'm sure your wifes mother was a great person and i believe you all loved her very much,but in my opinion you are too sad,take some time off from doing stuff and let the emotions pass,i recently lost a brother my self so i know some what how it must feel,the thing you and your family are doing wrong in my opinion is that you'r grieving too much,life passes and we shouldn't be sad about it happening we should celebrate the memory of the ones we lost and keep their ideals and morals alive through us.

    But like i said this is my opinion.
    And again my sincerest condolences to the entire family.

    I just had mygrand father in law pass awy last month. I have had people pass on me. It wasn't until this time it really hit me why. I was in charge of making a mural of pictures of Henry's Life. I took the two scrap books and worked ( I sort of lose track of time when I am at an easel) he was 88 and a ww2 vet, a father, son husband, and an artist for Warner brothers. stepping back and looking at the news aricles medal and pictures they said more than words ever could about him.
    You could see his joys, his pains. The changes in Life. the people he loved. We never really knew who he was or spent near enough time with him. Only at the end did I get a true sense of the man and by then he was reduced to a handful of boxes of his possessions and two mural boards. I would have traded all that cr&p to have him back.
    take your time and greive. Don't rush it.
    How we greive loss shows how much humanity we have left
    My condolences
