Last night, husband's eldest brother and wife finally made it to see mother in law. "D" has been somewhat estranged and visited sporadically at best, his wife has not been to a family event in more than 5 years. husband's younger brother, "P", came in from NC around 4:30PM. Her former daughter in law, whom she loved greatly, had visited in the morning. Duckie and I returned from her rehearsal at 9:10PM, while husband's older sister was directing their younger developmentally disabled to tell her Mom she would be okay. She passed peacefully at 9:15PM, surrounded by love from her family.
