Today, as the moments pass slowly away...

So, as you may recall, I was in a sorority. 

I wasn't the worst sister in the world, although, I was kind of far from the best.  Anyway...

I found out that one my sisters died yesterday.  And not an older alumna I didn't know well.

A sister I partied with.  I served on Executive Board with, performed ritual with.  Ate dinner with, goofed with, learned a capella Billy Joel with.  Joked about being a troll with.

She was my age.  And she lost her mother to breast cancer a few years ago, and then, it got her too.

I kind of fell out of touch with my sisters after I left school.  I got fat, I was depressed... these things happen.  Then I moved to Nashville, but I got on Facebook, so I kept track there.  I knew she'd been sick.

I knew she had been an active advocate in the Young Survivors Coalition.

And then today, I found out she was gone.

Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you.

This is us, goofing with an old school selfie.

She was a sweet girl, funny and just a fine individual...

And the only "good" thing I can say is that she's no longer in pain.

But she leaves behind a lot of people who are surely hurting.

Cancer sucks.  We all know this.  I have nothing more to say.

Except goodbye to an old friend.



I'm really sorry. This is something I haven't had to deal with yet, so I'm not sure what to say. Your tribute here and the ones on your FB page are lovely.
