A piece I'm going to hate to write

There's not much that's much good when a good friend has a terminal cancer, except perhaps that one gets the chance to pen moving tributes to them before they're gone when they can still (we hope) appreciate them.

I haven't yet sumoned up suffcient focus to write my own tribute to good friend Anna Woolf (aka Annie Fox), but Lindsay Perigo has. Read 'Going out in Style,' which title to Anna's enormous credit describes her realism, her honesty and her courage. As John Newnham comments based on what he's gleaned from Anna's blog, "Grace in life, and courage in the face of death." If that's true for Annie Fox's blog, it's even truer for Anna Woolf in person.
