A week ago today, my mother-in-law died in a local nursing home due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.  She was 84 years old.  It was so sad when the disease began to take her mind away from us, but she will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother.  A mother of five who through may years of her married life held a full-time job, she had plenty of spunk.  Her Mexican Cornbread was a family favorite that will always be associated with her.

We have been missing you for so long, but now you are finally gone.  Rest in peace dear Oleta.
