In Memoriam

I just found out that a dear writing friend of mine died suddenly this morning of an aneurism. Vicki Graf was kind, generous, and a fine writer. Although she suffered from several health problems, including diabetes, she was not one to complain or be slowed down. She was always incredibly supportive and an excellent reader who knew how to provide gentle suggestions for improvement. She will be greatly missed.

Please read her story Iron Butterfly, published last spring in Flashquake. It can also be read in print in the current issue of Mindprints.

Sharon - I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I read about it on your blog after I made my blog post - strange coincidence.

One good thing about writers is that they really do live on in their writing.

Thanks everyone. It's surprising how connected you can feel to someone you've never met in person.

May Vicki Graf's words live on and effect as many.
