I'm still valuing a fair amount of silence at the moment, and I'm afraid eloquence fails me when it comes to the loss of L.K. Madigan. When Lisa first went public with her cancer diagnosis, I blogged at that time about my interactions with her, and what she and her writing meant to me.
But I do want to post this, because it is a practical way you can help, if you are moved by Lisa's story (or by the stories she wrote). She established a trust for her son's college fund. Donations may be sent to:
