To my wonderful Mother-in-Law Joan, Thank you for accepting me into your family. I have been both blessed and privileged to have had you as my mother-in-law. You have been a woman of dignity, strength, love and support to all of us. I will miss your smile and our conversations. As there must be some Irish blood in the Hallock Clan, I offer the following Irish Blessing - May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind always be at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rains fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
