When someone passes I'm always reminded of a quote from - of all people - John Mellencamp (actually John Cougar Mellencamp at that time), on the passing of his grandfather. He dedicated the Scarecrow album to him and I remember reading the album liner notes (yes, a vinyl record!) back at the time which would have been around 1987.

His dedication included the words "There is nothing more sad or glorious than generations changing hands".

Twenty-five or more years later, I still remember and appreciate that sentiment because it sums it up so completely for me.

Sorry for your loss, the only thing that keeps me going at times of loss is the saying, better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved. Thinking if you both xx

I'm so sorry to hear this Elaine. Sending condolences to John, you and all the family.
When my mother-in-law passed away, I found these words which I have loved to this day: "Life is eternal and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon. And a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight". Thinking of you xx

Elaine,
Sometimes our loved ones slip away, quietly and gently, as if death is a private thing that they prefer to do by themselves… it is one reason why we should never leave important words unsaid.
John must be devastated to have lost his lovely Mum. But he must be comforted to know that he has you, and your family - and that your Mum-in-law was so loved and respected by them all. What a wonderful testament to her life.
