Loss



My friend Pam died this morning.

---------How can we have a world without her?

I'm very sorry for your loss. I do understand how you may feel. I lost my best friend of over 20 years in April. I'm coping as best I can, but there is still so much I can't do yet. I always remember that it's okay to grieve...as long as it takes.

Thanks, HR. This is a tough one. I think I met Pam back in 1985--college. In recent years we grew much closer.

With pancreatic cancer, we all knew her death would come far too soon, but even though we were "prepared" for it, loss is still loss.

She was charismatic, colorful, spirited, loyal, one of a kind. As a friend and a teacher, she brought out the best in people. And no matter how bad things got, she could always, always make me laugh. . . . Yeah, this is tough.
