Ingrid, what a poignant and beautiful endearing testament to an incredible lady. Not only did I step into your life as if it was mine in the moment, I stepped into Laura's. This is a sad story but it is also an extremely joyful one in that this one being changed so many lives and as you stated, you are the better person for it but your grandchildren have not only absorbed your wisdom and goodness and love, but Laura's also.
Incredible ending with an exceptional philosophical quote.
Your friend always

Laura died on the Monday morning after Father's Day. A lot of this I wrote hours after her death. It was the only way I could process what had happened.
