Excerpts from five reader responses…….

by Rod Smith

“My in-laws are the most fantastic people who’d give my husband and me the shirts off their backs and they’d do anything for our children. When I read about families who are cut off from grandparents or from in-laws it makes me so sad. We would live together if it were convenient – but we try to get together as often as possible. I thank God for my husband’s parents who have taken me as a daughter and have given me what I could not get from my own due to sad circumstances that I will not go into here.”

“My wife’s father is really one of my best friends.”

“I call my mother and my step-mother ‘mom’ since they both do the same things.” (Peter, 11)

“My husband is the kindest man I have ever met.”

“The best gift my father gave me was the appreciation of hard work. He played hard because he worked hard and I find myself wanting to do the same.”
