As many of you know, my mother had been in failing health for several years.  
She passed away peacefully and comfortably Sunday night, two years beyond her 
doctors' "final" prognosis.  I was able to make it to Florida to spend the final 
day with her.  She was lucid and comfortable in good spirits.

My family and I appreciate all your kind words and support.  There will be a 
private service, and in lieu of flowers, you can send donations to the Cancer 
Care Center, 1430 S. Pine Street Melbourne, Florida 32901 or to your local 

She did not believe in cryonics or most of the weird futurist ideas that I 
described to her.  But she was always the most supportive and interested in my 
pursuits.  Her illness distracted me from these pursuits while simultaneously 
emphasizing their importance.  I am both depressed about our progress and 
emboldened renew.

Life is good.  Death is bad.  We need to keep trying to make everything
