Health Update: May 12, 2016

Hello Friends,

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 or 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.

Deep bows,
Great gratitude,

The Hartman Family

  1. A beloved being has been in our midst. Many have been uplifted by knowing Blanche. I count myself blessed for even the few times I was able to be close to her, talk with her and get a hug. I will be a part of many others who are holding her in their hearts as she begins her passage. Also may the love and respect that will gather around her be a comfort to her family and close friends.

    With gratitude and love, Allee Blatner.

  2. I read this with sadness that a beautiful teacher will soon leave us, with great gratitude for her teachings, and with deep affection for dear Blanche. May we all take inspiration from the example of her life, and comfort knowing she is at peace.

    Thank you for giving us so much warning. I am glad Tony and I could come to see you at Age Song.
