Your death was the first one I ever experienced that took me by surprise. I mean, when my great-grandmother died, she was so old we knew it would come sometime or another. But no one expected you to die. Who dies in a freak canoeing accident, really? It remains a mystery.
PS. I'm writing this post in the middle of baking some cookies! My friend is volunteering for RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network) and they're having a bake sale on Thursday!
