one of my closest friends died night before last. she was almost 75 but had many good years left in her, so i thought. she died peacefully, in her sleep after a bad asthma attack that sent her to urgent care the evening of the 28th.

carol was my dad's girlfriend and the 1st time i met her was at my wedding, almost 23 years ago. she was a marvelous woman and i enjoyed a continued relationship with her after she and my dad parted ways. they also remained good friends.

carol was like how i wish my mom would have been to me. she was more like a big sister and mentor, besides being a dear friend. she had a wonderful sense of humor and a huge heart <3

i am crushed. this was so unexpected. i am so tired of people i love dying....

i hope she and my dad are hanging out now, discussing what they argued about so much in life which is what happens after. i hope she is giving him shit, like she always did. and i hope they are enjoying a shot of wild turkey together.

she was a licensed clinical social worker and helped people who really needed it. she loved working with teenagers who had bad home situations, abuse, teen pregnancy, battered women, etc. she charged a fraction of what others did so that she could get help to the people who really needed it. she was so compassionate and kind. and funny and warm and sincere.

god, i'm sad....
