I didn't know tx_db8r well, and I won't pretend to. I can't eulogize her. Any eulogy from me would be like a eulogy from Hurley on Lost. ("She liked flowers and Thin Mints and she cared about people, man.")
I did not know Liz well enough.
I wish I had known her better.
It feels wrong that I did not know her better, and that I won't ever get the chance to now.
Called yendi to tell him.
yendi: "I know she was sick, but I didn't think it was serious..."
Me: "She just had the flu. She just said she had the flu. How could we know? I should have known."
There is so much we don't know. Even here where we think we tell each other everything, there is so much we just don't know.
She was twenty years old.
