Sorry to hear that Drew.  My condolences.

Thanks all.

Meh, she's 83 years old, and it's been a long time coming.  So it's sad, but it was by no means unexpected.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Really sorry. I hope it's not too difficult for her and that she had a good long life. My grandfather died two years ago. He was ninety six, he'd been in good shape until right before his death, and it was quick. I figured that was the way and time to go.

Condolences.
