Crap crap crap.
How did I miss this?
Well, I know how I did - I'm just really angry that I had left such a big space since I last emailed her. Too slow. Too sporadic. I hate that I'm like that. I wish I'd leapt up and visited her as soon as we'd emailed. In my head I always hoped we'd meet in real life. I think I would have liked Dee a great deal in person; I liked her a great deal in the written word.
I'm sorry Dee; and I'm so sorry for your family and friends. I hope it all played out like you'd planned.
Beastly, beastly disease....
