This week has a been a very difficult week for our family. My mother-in-law, who bravely battled cancer, finally succumbed to that awful illness. It has been a week of lots of crying, planning, discovering new things about my mother-in-law and having lots of family around. We have been truly blessed by all the friends and family that have helped out and given there support. We were very fortunate to have our out of town family stay with us. The picture above is my husbands cousin, Jill with my oldest son. She stayed with us along with her parents from Chicago. Jill drove down from Oregon to attend my mil funeral. What wonderful people! It was truly a joy to have them stay with us. Jill's whole family is celiac. I was able to get some wonderful tips and tricks from her. What a wealth of information. I think once things settle down next week, I am going back to trying to convert my family to go fully gluten free.
