In Memoriam Once More

The number of deaths in or close to my life in this year is somewhat overwhelming. I want today to honor several lives.

First, a friend of my dear friend Tyromaven's, a farmer and beekeeper, who died suddenly this weekend.
Second, a former co-worker of mine from a publishing house, who fell suddenly ill last week and succumbed to brain death last night.
Third, my supervisor's grandmother, who died in Guatemala on Friday after a long illness.

These people impacted my life, whether directly or by touching the lives of those I care for, and they shall be missed. All the new insights I've had about grief in the last year do not make it any easier.

I'm ready for 2007 to be over.
