If I had been broadcasting 140-character tweets this past week I would have announced that I was in Milwaukee to be with my husband's family and to attend a lovely graveside service for my mother-in-law, who died Sept. 24, 2007 at age 83.

I won't type out her name because she was an extremely private person. I will tell you that we shared the same first name (Deborah), that she was old-fashioned and admirable in every way and that I
