As it is, the tears are streaming down my face at work. Today I found out that a dear, sweet friend has passed away suddenly.
She was far too young, far too kind and far too full of life for this to happen. I have known Char of the Ramblins blog since our days on Myspace in a tight knit group of blogging friends which spanned a good five years if you can believe it.
Char was so genuinely kind and gracious that I always aspired to be as decent a human being as she was. In five years of blogging and commenting, emailing and mailing even, I never heard a harsh or unkind word from Char. Towards anyone. It is no exaggeration for me to say that she inspired me to be a better person.
So it is with difficulty that I say goodbye to her. She was a woman who was passionate and kind. She was a remarkably talented photographer and she believed in living each day as though it was your last. She knew this life was precious. As she said, "Life is too short to waste a single day: eat cookies."
If you haven't already visited her photography blog, please do so today. She was a special lady and I will miss her.
Goodbye, sweet Char.
