Rest in Peace, Sandra Alvord Eakman

Many of you know that my Mom was recently diagnosed with stomach cancer.  Last week, she underwent aggressive surgery and we learned earlier this week, once lab results came back, that she was on a short tether -- three to six months.

Last night, Mom passed away due to unexpected complications in her recovery from surgery.  My wife and I were beside her as she slipped quietly away, asleep and without pain.

This is a kindness on many levels both for her and those who loved her.  We were uncertain how the next few months would go for her based on other health issues and our gift in this is knowing that she went quickly without suffering.

I love you, Mom.  Rest in peace after your long, hard journey.
