I just got a call from Chana Weisberg, an editor and writer for Chabad.org. She spoke to my mother-in-law about the situation and wants to write a bit about it in her blog.

My mother-in-law has no head for this, her one concern of course is sitting and saying Psalms, but told Chana that if it means more people will do mitzvot or pray, then she'd be glad to oblige. Chana was very nice and sensitive to the situation and I am sure she will inspire many with her blog posting.
