Down a sort of a different path today – a ‘memory lane’?
What I remember about them.
They always sat together watching T.V.
Not an easy thing necessarily for a man and a woman since they have such different interests typically.
(I wonder how they chose what to watch.)
Like the Bunkers on All In The Family.
That is what they reminded me of – Edith and Archie – except this was Marie and Raymond.
He, more often than not, sitting in his recliner, would fall asleep.
What I remember about her, my mother-in-law, is that she always had a joy for life, whatever was going on.
Always a quick smile and a cheerful disposition –
If there was pain (emotional pain) she lived with it well – always seeming able to put it aside and embrace the current moment.
Her children loved her, and you could call her blessed.
