Sad news

My grandmother, Donna Heinlein, passed away last night (this was expected for a while). It's likely that I'll be out of the shop for as much as a week in the near future to attend services for her either in Indiana or in Albuquerque.

Just an FYI - this will probably cause some minor delays for those on the waitlist.

The photo, btw, is of my little sister and Granny taken in 1987.

I know you don't know me, and I don't know you, but either way I'm sorry for your loss. Even expected, ... it's still the loss of a grandparent. My Granny is 92 and I mean even if she was perfectly healthy, she's still 92. There is only so much time. Sorry for losing your grandmother.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. man Its never easy to lose a loved one, even if you think your prepared for it.
My granny passed last Fall at the age of 102.and it takes awhile to accept. Take some time to bond with your family and celebrate her life.

Walt - sorry to hear of your Grandmother's passing. May her soul rest in peace. When you build your next bike, you should put Grandma's name on it.

Sorry for your loss. I lost my grandpa ten years ago and my grandma 4 years ago and if I ever want to cry all i have to do is think about them.
