We regret to inform you of Majel Barrett Roddenberry's passing away early this morning, due to a short battle with Leukemia. She was surrounded by her family and close friends and passed away peacefully.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the CARE Organization or Precious Paws both of which share Roddenberry's love for animals and dedication to animal rescue.
Funeral details are pending and a public memorial will be scheduled sometime after Christmas or in early 2009.
With deep sadness,
(Forwarded by Commodore Jon Lane)
I got this in the mail shortly after my boss told me.
