You get the idea. By the way, I have been married twice: The first time I had the world's greatest in-laws who I loved almost more than my own parents, and who I think of fondly to this day. The second time, my husband's mother was already dead when I met him and his father died unexpectedly, shortly after I met him one time. They were both lovely people.
