Miss Penny, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother in law. While we are all selfish in wanting to keep them here on this earth with us, we can rest assured she is in heaven dancing with the angels awaiting the day that we will all join her to rejoice in everlasting life with Jesus our Lord and Savior. I will keep you, Carl and the rest of the family in my prayers. God bless you. -Lil'Mike
