After a brief illness, my mother passed away last night. She will be dearly missed.
UPDATE (Friday, Dec. 6th) – Thanks for all the thoughtful comments. As you might imagine, there are lots of things to tend to here regarding the estate in general and the house in particular. We won’t begin the road trip back to Montana (flew here, driving back with Mom’s car) for maybe another week. One of the obituaries can be found here.
