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.

Please accept my condolences.

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.

My sincere condolences on your loss. My thoughts are with you with wishes for renewed hope and joy in the coming year for you and yours.

My condolences, Maki and Max.

I truly hope that you both recover from the loss.

I just wanted to say that I'm sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Hi M,

May she rest in peace and I hope you and Max have many happy memories of her.
