I enjoyed all the time I spent with my mother-in-law Catherine. All the times the four of us gone out to eat. David, Kathy, Dawn and me. Going to Frederick Meijer gardens, going to the zoo, Michigan adventures, the Grand rapids museum and the Ford museum. We also took her to a monster truck show and drag racing lol. Setting off fireworks in her backyard on the 4th of July 🎇 and enjoying the holidays together. I couldn't have asked for a sweeter mother-in-law. Until we meet again I love you Mom ♥️
