“Tribute to my mother in-law
Mrs Mary Oboli Oct 10 1945 – Jan 11 2021
I am so proud and so honoured to have called you mom my darling mother in-law.
One of the strongest women I had the privilege of knowing. You fought valiantly even till the end.
Thank you for raising the man that I love and for instilling in him that quiet strength that’s one of his many amazing qualities.
I will forever cherish your unconditional love for me. Thank you for never being a meddling mother-in-law.
I will forever appreciate your welcome of me into the family. Not one day did you make me feel like a stranger.
I remember your kindness and strength and how jovial you always were. Your many stories and jokes that made us laugh so hard. You always lit up the room.
Life of the party! You still managed to dance at your last birthday even though you were ill. You made my friends and I laugh so much when you were in pain yourself.
Your son, your grandkids and I miss you.
You were a shining light and we will hold you forever in our hearts. Sleep well mom. We will always love you CancerSucks ”
