This last week my mother-in-law passed away.  She was like a second mother to me.  I will miss her tremendously.  We lived next door to her for nearly ten years.  She was my wife’s best friend.

As I thought about her  this week I considered the impact she has had on her family.  Verlene taught her children about the most important things in life.  She was not a genealogist, but rather was a family historian.  She shared stories of her ancestors that taught her children the most important lessons in life.

When I was growing up I often heard my father comment, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”  I have seen the truth of this countless times in life.  The many garage sales, and the success of them, attest to the accuracy of the statement.  My son was laughing when he came home from a friend’s house a couple of months ago.  He said, “Dad, my friend’s mom came home with deformed candles from a garage sale.  People will buy anything.”
