I learned of Lisa too late — by the time I found her incredible blog, she was dying.  I never talked to her, or exchanged e-mails, or twittered with her.  Her journey was too personal for a complete stranger like me to invade.  Yet I read her blog, and the comments, and realized that she was an incredible human being with an incredible story.

She was a mother and a wife.  And she’s gone.

When your heart breaks for someone you never even met?  That’s a testament to the person who put herself, and her journey, out there.

Rest, Lisa.
