My old friend Laura...

... has died of breast cancer, round 2. 46 years old. She died more than a month ago, but I just found out now. Last fall, we got back in touch with each other through Facebook and caught up with each other after 15 years. I didn't get to see her again; she lives, lived, out of town, but it sure was fun knowing her.
We were in university residence together; she lived down the hall. She outrageous, hilarious and totally fearless. Her three teenage daughters look just like her. Her obituary says donations to the Juravinski Cancer Centre Foundation are appreciated. I think I better go do that.
I'm stunned. Someone like Laura should live to be an outrageous old lady. What a rotten, despicable disease.
