Friends, things are quite sad over here at Food in Jars HQ. My mother-in-law died on Sunday morning. She had spent the last nine months struggling with metastatic colorectal cancer and had gone into hospice just a week and a half ago. We knew the end was near, but we didn’t expect it to arrive quite so quickly. Right now, we’re wading through the details and arrangements, trying to keep our heads above the fog of grief.

I have a couple posts lined up for the next few days, but on the whole, posting it going to be a little bit slow around these parts during the later part of this week. Thank you for your compassion and understanding.

Now, some links.

I will email all the winners in the next couple days. And don’t forget to enter the Beyond Canning giveaway I’m running this week. It’s such a fantastic book!

  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
    I hope you and your family can find peace in this difficult time

  2. So very, very sorry Marisa. I wish there were words to make it all better. Losing a parent is so difficult for the entire family.

    Sending a virtual hug your way.

    And thank you for the link love.

  3. My condolences. No matter how much you prepare or know it is coming, it is always too soon and a shock. Please take all the time you need to be with your family.

  4. So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to family. Peace and comfort be with the family
    Congratulations to all the winners.
    My aunt had just turned 100 years young on Feb. 29th and passed away the following morning at 3:00am.
    I think she held on just long enough to have her birthday as she was so looking forward into celebrating her 100th.

  5. Condolences to you, your husband and the rest of your family.
    Hold the cherished memories close.

  6. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I know your Mother in Law was proud and honored to have you as her Daughter in Law. May all the generousity and love you send out to the world return to you 100 fold.

  7. Sincere condolences to all of you. Having lost a niece to the same horrific disease less than a year ago, we know it’s awfulness. Comfort each other and remember happier times.

  8. So so sorry for your loss. You and your family will be in my thoughts.
    I know nothing will take away the pain right now, but if it helps, Amazon just told me your book just shipped…..

    Prayers to you..

  9. So sorry about your mother in law. May her memory wrap you in peace and comfort in the days and months to come.

  10. My sympathy to you and your husband – it’s so hard to lose a parent. I love what the person just above me in these comments said – “may her memory wrap you in peace and comfort”. It’s those memories that will keep her with you always.

  11. Went over and read the blog post. Your MIL sounds feisty like my own mother was. 😉 (She passed away from cancer too, at 49 years old.) Cancer sucks and robs lives too early. Sending sympathy and prayers your way. It’s hard to lose a parent, my thoughts are with your family.

  12. So sorry for your loss. May the celebration of her life be lengthy, and the time of your sorrow be brief.

  13. Marissa, my thoughts go to you, your husband and family on this tragic loss. For most of us, moms are the glue that holds the family together, so I know she will be greatly missed. May thoughts of her in a place where pain is no longer bring some comfort.

  14. Many condolences to you and your family. May your memories of her bring many blessings and take away sorrow.~
