Tricia died around 2:30 this morning.

I think it's good that it's over, if it had to go this way. The last week or two were pretty agonizing for her from what I understand.

As for the blogathon, I meant to make that announcement once I'd heard a little more about what the family would be able to do with the money, so people could feel more of a personal connection, but obviously I won't be bothering them about that now. But the blogathon did raise $800, which was pretty amazing. I do know that the family was really, really happy to get it and thanked me I don't know how many times. I didn't do it alone, though, which I noted. I could have written a hundred hours straight and if nobody donated it wouldn't have mattered. Thank you all so much for your donations.

I don't think there's much else to say, so I won't. I love you, Trish. Everyone should be like you and make the world a better place just by being in it.

Oh, God, K. I'm sorry for your loss and that of Tricia's family. ♥ I hope she has found her peace at last, in a place where pain cannot touch her.

My condolences to you and to her family. What a tragic, literally heartbreaking time it's been, and may everyone (including Tricia) start to find some peace.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I think Blogathon was an amazing thing that you did, and I'm proud to have been a tiny part of it by contributing.

I'll be thinking of you and yours.

I'm sorry Kylie. From your descriptions of her, the world is a poorer place without her.
