Update

In case anyone wondered why I've not answered any mail, it's because my mother took a turn for the worst and I had to run back to where they admitted her to the hospital to be with her and my father.

It seems there were many things wrong with her and this time, too many for her to fight. She didn't want to extend her life by life-support, nor did she want a nursing home or any other efforts to prolong her life. So she decided she'd had enough for her 80 years and passed away this evening, peaceful in sleep with her husband of 56 years and me by her side.

I understand and upheld her wishes. It still doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye.

So Jen, if you wouldn't mind, please take over the communities for a week or so until I get myself more together--I'd really appreciate it.
