My mother-in-law was a proper, English lady. She lived in the US for 55 years, but she maintained much of her British upbringing in her voice and customs. She was polite, gentle, demure, and wonderful in every way possible. She was also very clever and delightful. She passed away yesterday after a fairly long illness. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers. I'm thankful for her influence on her children and granddaughters.
