One of my favorite science fiction writers, Spider Robinson, has
shared this about the passing of his wife from cancer.

If you have not read Robinson's the "Callahan's Saloon" novels, you
should.  They are among the most humanistic and touching sf/fantasy
stories I have ever read.

Subject: Buchi Eihei In pacem
From: Spider

Jeanne Robinson left this life at about 4:45 Sunday afternoon, a gentle
smile on her face.

Her departure was quite peaceful and she was in no pain at all.

(Buchi Eihei means "dancing wisdom, eternal peace". It's the name Jeanne's
Soto Zen
instructor bestowed on her).
