Sunday Obit - Douglas John ABERLE

                                                    Douglas John ABERLE passed away

This is a discussion I had with myself: I never know whether it is proper to refer to him as my ex-Father-In-Law or just leave it at FIL. He is after all one of the two grandfathers to my two boy, and the father of my ex-husband. I have remarried and have a new set of In-Laws, If I call my husband my ex husband than should it be my ex FIL too. YES I have decided that he is in fact my ex-husband and my ex-FIL. BUT he is not an ex-father or ex-grandfather, so that is the difference.

                                         Doug had always been a  nice man, and he will be missed.
