I just got this e-mail from jamamakitty with a request to post it here for all:
Attention Cheezpeeps: Cween MJ had to go home to attend to her mother who was failing due to heart failure. I just got off the phone with her and her mother passed at around noon today, peacefully with her family around her. MJ will be returning to Tuscon on Wednesday and will resume her duties as Cween of the land. Please to hold her in your thoughts.
