On January 30, 2010, my mother died suddenly and unexpectedly. She was 82 so it was not entirely unexpected. However, she did not have any chronic health problems beyond arthritis and some circulation difficulty in her legs. Basically her kidneys gave out, her blood pressure dropped precipitously, and when blood returned to her heart the strain was too much and her heart failed.
I took some time off an have been involved in another project and taken vacation, but I'm back now and ready to post again.
