Rest in Peace, Una Snow

Those that make all those horrible mother-in-law jokes, clearly did not have Una Snow as a mother-in-law. She was a warm, wonderful human being and I'm privileged to have known her.

You will be missed, Una.

(For more on Alzheimer's Disease, I suggest reading Sarah Leavitt's Tangles.)

My condolences, John. Thoughts and prayers go out to you & your family, especially your wife. It is hard to lose a mum.

My Grandma had Alzheimer's disease. It isn't what one passes away from. But it's a horror for those afflicted, who usually know their memory is compromised.

I send my respect to your wife and am glad you had such an unusually warm Mother-in-law. May your memories shine. Carolyn. www.CMRiedel.Wordpress.com

Melwyk: Thank you.

CMRiedel: Thank you. However, just to clarify, I did not say how she had passed away, but for the record, Alzheimer's is fatal. See #2 here.
