My mom, Jean, passed away early this morning. She died the way she lived with class, dignity and grace. She had been ill for over a year and knew the end was imminent, and ironically seemed to have more control over her life these past few weeks than she had for several months previous. I will deeply miss her but will hopefully take with me her infectious love of life.
Her obituary will be in the Kansas City Star tomorrow and Sunday if you would like to view. For those out-of-towners, I would be glad to email it to you.
