She was 85.
I still can't believe it.
This woman was... amazing. Her writing was inspiring, and she had the biggest heart. I wrote to her in my teens - sent her some music compositions and some art. She encouraged me in both, sent me this lovely, lovely letter and an autographed photo.
She made you feel that you mattered, that you were talking to an old friend.
She encouraged me to dream big, to explore my worlds and my creations and not give up on them.
I remember part of her address ... something along the lines of dragonhold underhill, or some such. She was hard working and whimsical, and she will be really missed.
