Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Too much death this week. After falling apart over the news re Pete Seeger Tuesday morning, I received more sad news this morning.

One time friend and former colleague. She was early 40s young, vibrant, devestatingly funny, loved traditional music, art and history and was quite the liberal thinker.

She fell ill with a brain tumour in September 2011. Had surgery and full compliment of chemo and radiation. Siezures left her unable to work. She and her partner had to move from the area and in with her parents. She was an only child.

She took a turn for the worse last week and passed this Sunday while in hospital.

This January is too sad.
