Can you talk about an experience in which humor helped lighten the mood?

When my mother in law became bedridden we spent days reminissing about the funnier things in life like the time she locked my child in the bedroom and called 911 to get him out. I arrived home that afternoon to a rescue squad in my living room. Or the time she set my apartment on fire trying to dry paper mache in the microwave. Again I arrived home to find the fire department at my home. We both laughed about it until we were in tears. She knew she was dying and she was very comforted to know that the funnier moments of her life would be passed down to generations for years and she would always be remembered with a smile.
