A ‘happy, ordinary, middle-aged suburban woman’ has died. It's with regret and sadness that I must announce to you that after years of living with melanoma Sara Shulsinger, author of Moving Right Along, has died. She had just turned 46 on the 24th of March.
Sara passed away last Saturday evening at 7:30 PM at Emerson hospital in Concord, Massachusetts, accompanied by her partner of 16 years, Erik Squires, Erik does nopt wish for condolences and says that if you had seen her last week, and in her last moments, you'd understand why he was grateful that she did not linger any longer. As Erik wrote in an e-mail to friends and family "May your grief be short, and your fond memories everlasting."
Sara was the very first blogger whose blog I read when I set up mine. How that came to be I cannot recall after all this time. She endeared herself to Jo, Richard and I when she awarded me the booby prize in one of her competitions and we opened it on Christmas Day.
Life is too short to spend it grieving for all the people we sort of half know in blogland but that doesn't mean we won't miss them and remember them with fondness for a long, long time.
