A few years ago (has it really been that long?), I wrote a couple blogs about Anissa Mayhew. She was blogger with sass, snark, and spirit and I really enjoyed what she had to say. She suffered through a myriad of health issues, causing strokes and other maladies. When I came across her stuff, she had just experienced a stroke and the internet was pouring its love out to her.
I was one of them. I even bought the t-shirt.
Today I found out that she has passed away. I’m saddened by her loss and the loss felt by her close friends and family. She was a special person, an exuberant, life-filled, soul. Though we never actually met, my heart now feels darker and more hollow for her presence having been taken away.
Requiescat in pace, Anissa.
