Regular Expression poser

I've got a huge sed script that converts a text document from the data dictionary into CREATE TABLE statements to generate database tables.  :)

I'm having trouble with the last update.  I need to remove the comma from the line(s) above a delimeter.  The source looks like this:

CREATE TABLE table1 (
  column1 integer, -- comment
  column2 varchar(8), --comment
);

CREATE TABLE table2 (
  column3 integer, -- comment
  column4 integer, -- comment
  column5 date, -- comment
);

etc...

I need sed to drop the last comma in each CREATE TABLE statement.

Thanks,
Kent
