We’ll Miss You

(Please excuse the cursing, but it’s how I feel)


Shit. Fuck. Damn.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” -Dr Seuss

I’ll try, Tsocks. You’re worth smiling for.

We’ll miss you.

I’m very very glad that I got a chance to say goodbye, and to thank you for your affect on my life. And I’ll pass on your message, “Why not?”

And I’m sorry I never got to show you my finished Lunantishee.

And I’ll miss you.

But I will try to smile, because it happened… and I am better for it. Forever and always.

My usual sign off seems… oddly apropos.

That’s all… for now

  1. I’ve not met her in person…..and only saw smatterings of postings in Ravelry….but she was important to a lot of people and it sucks and that’s all I can say about it without turning into an overly-emotional blubbery mess (yes, I get that way even about people I don’t know). 🙁

  2. You were a great friend, Dan.
    And Lisa, LOVED receiving your letters. She kept them by her bedside, and loved rereading them.
    She was so excited, that you were finally living your bliss.
    She was surprised that she had an such an impact on you, that you would write her More than once-
    Isn’t it funny, how she had NO clue- how many lives she touched, even changed, in such a BIG way…
    She will be sorely missed
    Thank you for this post, and the pictures.

  3. I met Lisa and you several times over the past few years at Cummington, CT, NEFF and Rhinebeck (I think in MA it was in the fleece sale area). I loved watching how much you both enjoyed the fleece and fiber, and to see other people having the same tactile experience I do (and listening, as you both have more knowledge than I have). I have a nice stash of Lisa’s kits and of your fiber that I have bought over the years. I was upset to hear how sick she was, and have been checking her blog, Ravelry and here to find out if there were any further updates. I am so sorry for your loss, and for the loss of someone so talented, funny, erudite and wildly creative as she always was. I hope she is with her beloved mom and that lovely dog she showed us pictures of.
