I have lost a friend. She was a kind soul, full of spunk and creativity…..always there for so many to play, talk….provide a shoulder. Its hard to believe that we never met in person…..but goes to show how deep of an impact friendships formed over the internet can have on our lives. I definitely will feel the loss—the hole where there should be instant message dings followed by laughter. She will not be missed only by me, but countless lives that she touched. Even though the news was just learned and starting to spread, so many people poured into a chat room last night in disbelief—-strangers joined in love and grief for a remarkable friend.
Since I am unable to attend any kind of service, I have lit a candle in her name and memory….and hope that she knows how much she was loved.
