Response to Sophiegirl (Original post)

13. This is a beautiful tribute, sophiegirl, lump in my throat.

I never got to see her in person, so it's touching to hear about your experience and feelings. Thank you for that.

Its a pity that hugging is limited in our world... I'm a big hugger and was at a conference last week where I hugged 2 people I like who I hadn't seen in a while, and even though it was a business setting they reacted like it was a nice surprise. I laughed to myself afterward because who knows... but to my way of thinking, if you feel something positive for someone, show it. There's too much distance in our world.

One more thought, FWIW... you might be able to send what you wrote here to her family... you never know if you might be the only person who expresses something like that, then they'll treasure that thought. I certainly found it very moving because I also have such an appreciation for her. And if others write to them as well, all the better.

Here's a big hug for you and your strength and sweetness.
