Dear friends,   
It saddens me to inform you that our beloved
mother passed away this afternoon.  As you may
know, she had elected to have an aortic valve
replacement on Monday, Dec 3, 2012 and was
in very good spirits that morning. However, due
to some complications during the procedure,
most likely caused by an embolism that went to
her heart, she never recovered from surgery.  
Naturally, we are still in shock from the outcome.

Mom had asked that I contact you after her
procedure to let you know how she is doing.  I
had hoped the news was a report on her rapid
recovery, but unfortunately it was not meant to be.

We will be making arrangements in the future for a celebration of life for my mom.  
She really enjoyed the ceremony that we had for my dad last year so we are hoping to
arrange a similar kind of service for her and will be sure to pass along that information
as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please feel free to share the news with any
friends who's lives she may have touched.  Also please do not hesitate to contact us
at any time.
