Oh no!! Just when you think your heart can’t be broken again it happens. My dear friend Nancy Reeder died tonight. I just got the call from Alex that she went to the doctor about her ongoing struggle with pancreatic cancer and the doctor urged her to check into a hospice right away. Apparently she did and she died before even spending one night. What determination this woman had to survive this vicious cancer and when she knew she wasn’t going to make it, she just let go and went as soon as possible. I’m so sorry to lose this precious being from my life but I’m glad she is not going to suffer more from that cancer.
Nancy was a good friend and an extraordinary person who fearlessly reinvented her life as needed. She was a tender, funny, smart, compassionate woman who loved life itself. I was so close to being home to see her again and didn’t make it in time. Oddly, the last time I saw her before I took off for New Zealand, we said goodbye at my house and I had the distinct feeling I was saying goodbye forever. Indeed I was.
More about this beloved woman later. I have uploaded these photos in high resolution. Feel free to download them and share them as you wish.
