Those of you who have been following my notes on Mom's illness via my Facebook page already know that she passed on NYE @ 8:25 pm. It was a very peaceful death, she died in her sleep, in her home, surrounded by family and friends. This is exactly what she wanted.
I've posted a note here with details should you wish to know more.
Thanks for your support everyone. I was here in DSM when she died. Flying back to Cali on Tuesday, and then I'll be dealing with estate stuff the next couple of months, I imagine.
