Remembering my mother-in-law


My MIL died three years ago. She succumbed to complications of diabetes and kidney disease at 76. Her diabetes and kidney problem could have been properly managed by the right amount of medication as soon as she was diagnosed with the ailment. But my MIL doesn’t have a medical insurance to support all her medical expenses. Her health deteriorated over the years. She has difficulty walking even if her children tried to look for a knee walker. They even check here for the orthopedic gadget but it was too late.

I remember my MIL as a kind and soft-spoken woman. We’ve only met three times because she was living in Gensan. We don’t have the opportunity to bond but I know that my MIL was an endearing wife and caring mother to her eight kids and numerous grandchildren. Our family misses her.
