And we are the poorer for her untimely and fatal illness from lung cancer.
She has been a brave and witty woman to the very end. If you have not read Cathy’s World, take a moment to read her blog.
She will be missed.
Yesterday, when I read her daughter Maia’s account of her condition, my personal sense of loss was so great that I thought she had already passed away. One of her friends wrote me this morning and let me know that Cathy is still receiving visits from her friends and family. Our thoughts are with her.
UPDATE: Cathy died at 2:05 today.
