Last Wednesday I received horrible news.
My friend from high school, Nancy, passed away in her sleep on Sunday night/ Monday morning.
Although it was absolutely shocking news, I knew that Nancy had been fighting inflammatory breast cancer even before I moved to Scotland. What made it shocking was how sudden and unjust it was; a young mother with two young daughters. Life is truly unfair.
I know some people can embellish a person once they pass away but genuinely, Nancy was one of the sweetest and most caring people I have ever met. She did not have a malicious bone in her. If anything, I'll forever be indebted to her for introducing me to Ben Folds Five and inviting me out to her farm when I was having a particularly hard time in high school.
Condolences to her family, her sister, and our friends - especially Sara D.
