We lost another Biden voter yesterday

Last edited Thu Jul 23, 2020, 05:45 PM - Edit history (1)

My mother-in-law passed away last night, after a mercifully short battle with cancer at the age of 84. She was looking forward to voting in the election this fall, and supported Hillary in 2016. She lived in a very red corner of our blue state, and was part of an underground network of those renegades who would dare to recycle, reuse and compost since long before it was fashionable. Yes, she was on every Democratic mailing list possible- NAACP, SPLC, DNC, Hillary, Biden, McGrath, and many others. That means that she gave generously to all who worked towards a better country. She supported Barack, and had more pictures of him on her refrigerator that she had of her many grandchildren.

She is now reunited with her husband, son and mother. I will miss her, she was a fine human being and a great example to all who knew her.


Late edit:
Thank you to all who responded today. You have all been so kind. You have reaffirmed why I am here and supporting our party. I do indeed, feel honored to have been a part of her family and to have known her as long as I have. I'm looking forward to many more with all her extensive family, especially my wonderful wife. I will support her as best I can during this heartbreaking time.

From a blue in a sea of red to a blue in a red corner.
May she recycle with St. Peter before the devil knows she's dead.

20. Extending sincere sympathy to you and your family.

I lost my 92 year old Mom in 2016. She was so looking forward to voting a woman into office, but that was not meant to be. Your Mom sounded like she was a special person. I'm sure you have special memories that will help comfort you. Take care of yourself, as deaths of family members are very stressful. Sending hugs and prayers you way!
