Wherever the soul of my father-in-law might be, I want my heart to have compassion for him and for him to know that. It was so hard for me caring for him because he was rather difficult and demanding when he came to live with my husband and me. I later found out that he had been an abused child from a demanding father and a mother who had mental health issues. I pray that all parents would try to be good parents because how they treat their children can make or break them as healthy, happy, loving grown ups. Once I learned about my father-in-law’s background, I knew he never felt loved or appreciated. I am so sorry I did not understand him, but I did love him and if it possible for him to read my heart from heaven, I hope he knows I wish he had had a better life and I send him my love.
