Mother in law just died

She didn't get along with a lot of people, but she loved her granddaughter (my kid) with all her heart and even loved her daughter (my wife).

My poor wife was on her way to Paris with our kid when the police called her while she was on a layover in Philly. She's obviously devastated.

RIP...

"and even loved her daughter"

You say that like it's exceptional... Not to speak ill of the dead, but the way you worded your post is very telling. Still, sorry for your wife's loss, shit is never easy

I'm sorry for your loss sioux.  I was lucky enough to have 4 grandparents into my teens. A grandparents love is special, I'm glad your daughter got to enjoy it. 

Sorry to hear it mate.

Sorry for you and your family. Good vibes during this bad time. Hang in there for your family. You are the rock.
