Oh no!

Her original trip report is such a classic. I actually have a copy saved on my computer and I re-read it now and again.

So very grieved to hear of this news. She was very kind to me, at a juncture of my life when I needed understanding. I will miss her dearly. I am at least comforted that her leg is are no longer a burden or pain for her.

OMG! I had no idea she was sick. She is one of the reasons I am on these boards - I found her trips reports and became a member. I hate this!

I am so sorry to read about this. She was a ray of light. Loved to read her stories. She had such a way of expressing her observations, insight, and humor. Really drew people in.

She will be missed. My condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the family.
