Martha, Max’s mother, passed away quietly in her sleep last night.

We were prepared for it, I suppose, but you can’t really be fully prepared for the passing of a parent either.

There are a few articles that I’ve already written, which will be posted here and on Just Bento over the next few days but replying to emails and comments etc. will be slow. Thanks for your understanding.

I can’t remember the polite expression in Japanese, but y’all have my heartfelt sympathies. May all the arrangements go very smoothly and may everyone find peace in his/her own way.
