A peaceful passing…

This is Sandy’s son Greg with sad news.

After a life well lived, an inspiring fight, and a comfortable final week surrounded by loving family, my mom is at peace, having passed in her sleep the afternoon of Sunday, January 30. She was ready and not afraid, and she asked me to thank you for your friendship, love and support.

Services of remembrance and celebration will be held at the end of this week: a viewing/visitation Thursday evening, followed by a funeral service Friday at noon starting at the Sego Lily Ward of the LDS church in Sandy, Utah, and proceeding to her burial site. I’ll provide more specifics shortly.

An Overdue Update…

Long time since I’ve kept you up to date. My bone marrow transplant has failed and we gave it 8 months to try to recuperate and it hasn’t cooperated at all. So I’ve chosen to go off of all medications, all chemo, and go under hospice care to see what will happen there. This started last weekend. I don’t feel any better…I’m still very tired, I can’t walk, I have Greg and Kerstin and Peter to carry me around. Fortunately I’ve lost about 30 pounds so that helps them. I know a lot of you have been praying and wondering what’s been going on, and I appreciate those efforts on my behalf. I love you and will keep in touch.
