Just a quick footnote to remember and honor Rachel. I did not know her well: met her only once and spoke to her on the phone a handful of times. She was the beloved of a good but distant friend.
She passed far too young, and far too painfully, and without having achieved many of her life goals and dreams. My thoughts are with her, with her beloved, her friends and family, and with us all - we are all such vulnerable, precious flames of energy and too easily extinguished.
