RIP Blanche Hartman

Just got an email from Linda Ruth Cutts that Victoria Austin had called her from the hospital to say that Blanche Hartman just died. At 1:30am May 13th. [corrected to 12:30am]

Gyate gyate dear Blanche!

Had received this email today:

Today Blanche has begun the process of moving towards the end of her life. We are waiting for the family to all arrive which should be happening tomorrow later morning early afternoon. After everyone is here, they will remove treatment and Blanche will begin Palliative care. Blanche will stay where she is for now. She is very much at ease and peaceful.

Again we welcome chants, offerings and blessings in her honor, but request no visitors outside the family at this time.
Daigan will continue to let you know as things change.
Deep Bows
Great Gratitude
The Hartman Family
Daigan Gaither
Victoria Austin
