Thinking of Gail

I came to work this morning to the news that one of my coworkers, a legal assistant I work with on a daily basis, died of a massive heart attack yesterday. I am still in shock...it just doesn't seem real.

Gail was a raucous, fun person who was also incredibly kind and thoughtful in a very quiet way. She wasn't into quilting or art stuff, but a month or so ago, when I was really struggling with my quilting angst, she took time to talk it through with me. I hadn't asked for help, but she saw that I needed something and she stopped to help. She asked me a lot of good questions and even came up with an excellent idea for turning some of the small things I've been making into a larger quilt.

I can't believe she is gone. I will miss her.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your friend, esp. one who seemed to "get" what you were into and who you are.
