A final (formal) remembrance

My column today is a tribute to my mother-in-law and her love of bling. I've been wearing a lot of it lately, especially the rhinestones. I think she would be pleased.
Two glitzy watches we just unearthed last night. (At what point did my hands become my grandmother's?)

What a great gal. What a great column. So incredibly touching. You've really brought her back to life here. Hugs to you all. Such a loss. I will wear extra bling today in her honor.

I really enjoyed reading this. Thanks so much. I loved the watches, too. So cute. You have introduced her to many people who now will remember a little bit of her always.

Also THANK you for writing (approximation) "When she was 2, her mother died." I cannot stand it when I read "her mother died when she was 2." Really? That's a pretty young mother.

CSS and Kim, thanks for the kind words. I'm slowly getting batteries for the watches and we're slowly getting back to normal - whatever that was, in our case.

I thought you column yesterday was a lovely tribute to your m-i-l and the love she shared. More is more!

Fantastic column---so many lessons in there! I have been wearing my husband's grandmother's costume bling but I can't quite wear the matching earrings, bracelets and necklaces at the same time-- but so glad I have them! Thanks so much for the beautiful tribute.
