  1. Beverly (my mother in law) was a wonderful lady and didn't deserve to die in a tragedy like this one. Always had a smile in her face. She thought she could help him but he couldn't just let her be happy. We will truly miss her and we love her deeply. Those who knew her would never call her elderly as she was more active than most people in their upper 30's or 40. She had only one child, my wife Kimberly, who has taken this very hard.

  2. So very sorry for your loss!!! At least your wife has good support! I didn't lose my Mama so traumaticaly...and I still needed help getting over it. I found a very nice psychologist to talk & cry to. She might need to do that eventually. My prayers are with y'all!
