When I say I mourn her I want you to be sure what that means to me. When someone close to me dies, I do cry for the loss but at the very same time I am saying a prayer of gratitude for letting that person’s soul touch mine. I am grateful that I found her writings, especially her poetry, while I was still so very young and impressionable. I am a better person for knowing her work and letting her words guide me in my life’s path. Good bye dear lady, thanks for leaving so much of yourself behind on the written page. May young women and men all over the earth continue to read your works throughout eternity.
