Once in a while things happen and everything else suddenly seems unimportant.
I’ve tried all week to write something to somehow describe my friend Melissa Galdenzi. She was the best writer I knew. She probably would have been able to do it, but my talents fall short. With a seemingly infinite capacity to succeed at whatever she tried, Missy (later shortened to Mis, she reminded me, because it sounded more “grown up”) lived with an ineffable passion for life, laughter, and love.
I know you like to read my blog, so now I’m promising you this: to continue living my life the way you lived yours—with lots of love and a great big smile. And yes, I know, we should probably drink to this!
