Lost Sibling Club

This is not a club very many people want to join. While I've appreciated comments from everyone, in some ways, hearing from people who have lost siblings is especially touching. Then my gut reaction isn't along the lines of "Thanks for the sympathy." It's more like, "Oh, man, I'm sorry!"

Ann Vandermeer posted pictures of her sister a few days ago on Facebook. I think I'll do something like that for Liz after the memorial. In the meantime, there are a few pictures of her at the Dogland post I made a while back. This is the canonical one:


  1. Hi Will,

    I have been thinking about you.

    I think of this in exactly the same terms: a special club no one wants to be in. However, it provides an entirely new level of compassion for others and is a strange type of privilege(?)

    P.S. Someone put up flyers with Emru on the voodoo board and poster area at Worldcon. I still don't know who did it, but it was a nice gesture.

  2. Tamu, I was thinking of you, too. And that was a mighty nice gesture. Emru was a great guy. I'm sorry I never got to meet him in person.
