my colleague's cancer took over with unbelievable speed. two weeks ago she was still walking and planning ahead. I didn't say goodbye to her beyond the leaving town goodbyes.
she's slipped into unconsciousness tonight. odd to be getting most of the information online.
I wasn't very close to her outside of school, but she's been a strong influence over the past nearly ten years. she's the "department veteran" in this entry. a generous soul and I'll miss her greatly.
