This short post is to inform readers that my 90-year-old mother has died of kidney/liver failure, although she did last longer than had been predicted by the medical caregivers. For the next few days, I’ll be busy preparing for a family visitation at a funeral home, for the funeral itself and other necessary subsequent activities. I’m sure many readers understand times like these as they have been through them as well.

There is much to comment about in world and national matters, but I will not be blogging during this necessary family time. In a matter of days, I will resume posting to my blog and offer the same type of biblically-based commentary and updates that readers have been accustomed to seeing.
