So my friend Lisa died. I’m pretty upset.
You can’t tell from the pictures, but she was really really sick. Crohn’s. She was only 26. She was amazingly awesome.
I met Lisa for the first time just days before taking this picture, and I fell instantly in love with her. She was a brilliant – a righteous woman, an amazing friend. The kind of person who lights up a room with giddy energy just by being there. I don’t even know how to express what I felt, what I still feel, about her.
She was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of person.
Those of us who knew Lisa were truly blessed – her energy shone like the sun and she was so incredibly brave. NOTHING stopped this girl.
She was an inspiration to me, this tiny whip of a thing: smart, funny, and great eye candy. Seriously great eye candy. I think she’d appreciate my saying that.
Rest in peace, Lisa. You’ll be so, so missed.
