  4. Sorry to read of your husbands mother. What a wonderfully long life she lived. I think you creation is very fitting for a Michigan fan. {I don't get the whole thing of State vs UofM. Maybe if I would have gone to one of those schools I would feel different. I just know that people blow up my news feed and FB with all their Go Blue and Go State cheers. I say-whatever}
