The Beauteous Babs finally lost a long battle against breast cancer, passing away peacefully while surrounded by family. Major thanks to everybody in the El Camino Oncology departments who did so much to keep her going in a modicum of comfort for such a long time, and to the hospital staff who did so much to make her end days as comfortable as possible.
