I heard the news today, oh boy. (UPDATED)

My friend Aleda died earlier today. At the moment there's not much I can muster in terms of comments or words. All I can manage is to pray for the repose of her soul.


Miss her.

Over at TeacherGirl's she posted something and I wanted to lift one line of it
"How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again"
because, believe it or else, it helps.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen.

    I still haven't processed this. I'm sort of refusing to believe it.
