Last night my mother-in-law, Lenore Utal Boles, died after a five-year battle with cancer. As you can read about here, she was an amazing woman both in career and personal life.
As far as MILs go, I couldn't have been luckier. She always treated me as an equal member of the family and never hesitated to help when we needed it.
The last few weeks have been very painful for my wife and her family as the disease picked up speed and drug options ran out. We expect to be in Connecticut for several more days for the funeral and shiva. I hope to have additional posts about this soon, but no promises.
