Thank you for sharing this with us. I cannot help but cry, at the touching words and emotion in your post, but also at the story of the great love between your FIL and his wife.

At such a time of loss and relief my thought are with all of you as you grief and embrace the memory of your FIL. I am inspired by the dedication you and your wife had to 'family' and by the love that cannot help but seep into our bones from the subtle yet immutable passion and affection that was shared between your FIL and his wife.

A big hug for you and Bosslady. Please know that we are listening as you grieve and continually remember the person your FIL was. I know that Peanut will grow up and have many stories that show what an admirable man her grandfather was.


You've written a wonderful tribute to your father-in-law. I'm so sorry for your family's loss, and have said a prayer for all of you.


I'm terribly sorry for your loss, MD. Your tribute to BossLady's father is wonderful. May you take great solace in knowing that he's in a better place. My prayers are with all of you.


So sorry for your families loss.


I'm so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful man he sounds like.

Grace and peace be yours in this time of grief.


Marriages like that are amazing to me.

This a beautiful tribute to your father-in-law. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.


I lost my dad on July 12 and my mom last year on July 24. Thank you for sharing your love & grief with us here. You've put into words something that has touched deeply at least this one reader. My sincere condolences to you & your family. May you find some peace in knowing your FIL is no longer sick or in pain, that his love & lifeforce will always be here with you & in your memories of him. Blessings, C~

I hope one day I'm lucky enough to have a son-in-law who would write such a moving tribute to me. That was beautiful, MD.


Wow...sounds like you had a real treasure.

I am so sorry for you and your family (and from your inspiring words, the worlds) loss. You captured the final days in ways that I have struggled to articulate as my father went through the same thing 16 years ago. Again, sorry.

So very touching. How lucky you are to have had this man in your life. Peace be with you all as you grieve him.


that's quite an elegy, sir. our best to your wife and her family.

I know of no crueler fate than to lose someone you love so dearly. In the past year, I've lost both parents and my only sibling. Cancer took two of them. I'm still so angry about it.

Deepest condolences to you, BossLady and her entire family.

Mitch McDad

Sorry for your loss my friend. Please pass along my condolence to your wife and family. Take care.


I'm so sorry.


I am so sorry and this is a beautiful tribute to such an important person - an important person to each member of your family. He is definitely proud of you, his daughter, and your wonderful family.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful tribute.


What a beautiful tribute. I wish you and your family peace.

I'm very sorry for your loss, MD.


Thank you for sharing this with us, MD. My thoughts are with you and your families.

Would be nice to hear one day, how your mother in law is doing.


Pierre, I'm so sorry. Your father in law sounded like a great man. I'm happy for you that you had such a honorable example of father and husband. That's a great thing. Take care...hang in there.


That was beautiful...

I'm so sorry for your family.


that was so beautiful.
the kiss...that is what just....


I'm very sorry for your loss. I know you're grateful that you were able to create new memories these past few months. We lost my father-in-law to multiple myeloma eight years ago, before we had our two boys. One of my biggest regrets is that they never had the chance to meet him; he would have taken great joy in them.

My condolences to your wife, your daughter, and the rest of your in-laws, too.


Amazing, amazing post. You have a great way with words, MD. And your love for your FIL shines through. What a beautiful tribute to a special man. My thoughts are with you and Bosslady as you go through this difficult time.


I am so sorry for your loss.


Reading about our FIL's kiss brings tears to my eyes. I hope someday that I find a man who loves me like that. So sorry for your loss.

always home and uncool

Well put, brother. Amen and Godspeed.


This is lovely. Wishing peace for you and your family.


This is the most beautiful tribute. I didn't know your father-in-law and yet this brought me to tears.

My condolences to you and your family.
