Losing friends

A friend of mine left this world earlier this week. It's been a week of going to informal memorials and a formal one yesterday morning. She was eccentric, outgoing, insecure and sometimes just plain weird. And she changed the lives of everyone who knew her for the better. I had lunch with her ex husband on Friday. When he heard the news of her death, he drove 6 hours to Tucson from San Carlos, Mexico where he now lives and then boarded a plane for Iowa. That's how she affected people. People who new her whether they liked her or not feel a loss at the thought of her departure.

Last night several dozen of her friends in the music community gathered for an informal tribute to her. This was one of the performances from that tribute

I'll miss you Trixie,

Peace,

6 hours from San Carlos to Tucson.
It's 851 miles.

I did drive once from Gran Canyon to San Jose, starting in the afternoon, coming home before midnight; but it was kind of strenuous. But well, I drive at speed limit +9 (except Utah, where they take limits literally).
