I kind of knew it would happen but I still felt a little guilty. I've been trying to figure out something to do for him that would be a kind of keepsake or remembrance for his mother and I finally thought of something. There's a website (more than one I think...but this is one I've used before) that you can "buy" a star and name it whatever you want. I bought one and named it mother in law as a memorial. It came in the mail yesterday and when husband opened it and realized what it was, the tears just rolled. I felt bad for making him cry but I know he liked it too. Now if I could just get him to stop "trying not to think about it", I think he would feel a lot better.
