Shocked and stunned and deeply saddened

I just found out that an old friend of mine, Calli, has passed away. She was 41.

We got back in touch through Facebook about a year ago, chatted on the phone and through private messages and once we caught up, we kind of slipped back into our own lives, agreeing that some day, we'd meet for coffee and *really* catch up. We never did get around to that coffee. :o(

I got a phone call from a colleague today who also knew her, to give me the news. He said she died two days ago of a heart attack. He said she had terminal cancer and the doctors didn't expect her to live to the summer, but that the heart attack was a surpise. I just can't believe she's gone.

41 years old...makes me feel sick. She was married, but never had children...she told me that she had accepted that and was happy with her life. My heart is breaking for her husband, her parents and her younger brother. If you pray, please keep them in your thoughts today.

I will be attending the wake tomorrow night with Hubster.

Rest in peace Calli. Until we meet again...
