There once was a corpulent carp,My late mother-in-law would have loved this limerick. She loved silly jokes and this one definitely fits that category.
Who wanted to play on a harp,
But to his chagrin,
So short was his fin
That he couldn't reach up to C sharp.
She died five years ago today, on her 91st birthday, doing what she loved: working on her sermon for services later that night.

Well, she never got to deliver her sermon, but at least she never lingered in pain.
For over 25 years, she was not only my mother-in-law, but also a mother to me, and I miss her tremendously. She accepted me into her family wholly and without conditions--and with much love.
We even fought like mother and daughter!
Jerry, I, Mark, and Missy (and the rest of your family) will always love you, Anita Siegel!
Much love to you!
