    I heard on ABC news that the funeral would be taped and relayed to Tani on the ISS. It's got to be hard to be on the assignment of a lifetime and not be able to be with your loved ones during this time.

    She sounds like such a spunky 90 yr old, as busy as the rest of us youngun's.

    What's a son to do when he loses a parent while in space?

    Us Lombardians are very proud! Lilacs, I hope she has lots of lilacs......
