Good -bye Nicole

Today the world lost a very creative soul. I only met her a few times but she was a sheer delight to be around and could make some awesome smart ass comments in a pinch. Her comics and drawings will probably continue to delight those who are lucky enough to come across them.

It is situations like the one Nicole's family found themselves in a month ago that makes me cry WHY!!! Nicole locked herself out of her apartment on August 15th 2010 and for whatever reason decided that she could just scale the outside of her building to her 3rd floor apartment. Up she went, and down she fell. Never to regain consciousness. I know we all do REALLY dumb things but this could have been avoided.

I am angry at the world for letting this happen. No offence to my dad's wife Judy but I really wish she and Nicole could switch places right now. Judy is at the end of her journey on this planet, had a massive surgery this past spring and miraculously survived despite all the odds against her. Nicole, a very healthy 21 or 22 year old, with her entire life in front of her. Made one wrong choice and now is gone. There is no rhyme or reason for this.

It reminds us all just how short life really can be. And how important it is to tell people you love them.

take a moment and go to her blog: www.terrarbites.blogspot.com Enjoy her comics and her photos.

my peace find her family tonight

I found this quote today, which sums up what you just wrote:

“Death takes the good, too good to stay, And leaves the bad, too bad to take away”
