I am writing these words with tears in my eyes. The world lost a bright light today, my friend, Fran, who we lovingly called Wolf Lady went to join her loved ones in the Myst. Sending hugs and my deepest sympathy to her family. I know there are no words to lessen the pain, but know that time will help. Celebrate her life and she will live on in your hearts as she will in mine.
Met her on-line close to 8 years ago and became friends fast, we had that connection that we are rarely lucky to feel. We shared a love of books, she embraced new authors as I did and was one of my biggest supporter of this blog, old and current one. I was so happy when Sexy Mr. Random picked her name for the winner or see her happy face when I surprised her with a small packet from time to time, sharing my book signing bounty.
We chatted by email, on-line, on PM and Skype and made me laugh with her unusual way of writing typos, I dubbed ‘Fran-speak’. We shared happy moments and the not-so-happy ones too. We talked about meeting face-to-face and kept saying one day soon, but life got in the way… and now the only choice left is to ‘meet’ one day in the Myst.
I light a candle and remember her bright light. You will be missed Wolf Lady!!
