Just seen this. How appalling, there's nothing I can really say but I wish you all the strength and love that you'll need in this terrible time. I'm so sorry.

I don't think any words I have can do justice to this. My deepest condolences, Sutekh.

On Friday, I went to a printer friend of mine's office for some product labels I was picking up.

She seemed distracted and I asked her what was wrong.

Seems right before I came she had gotten a call from her sister telling her that a friend that had been in my friend's wedding had just gone into the doctor's and they told her she had three or four days to live.

She thought she was in remission from cancer but apparently it had come back w/o her knowing it and she went into immediate liver failure.

She's a single mom and her daughter was graduating from UC Berkeley this year. All the woman wanted, my friend said, was to see her daughter graduate and she is not going to be able to do that.

Let me tell ya, I have a few questions for God or St. Peter if I ever get that far.

I too have only just seen this & am so sorry to hear the bad news. And there really is nothing to add to what's been said so I'll simply offer my support should you need anything.
