A friend went into hospice yesterday. We are not super close, but I've known her for 15 years. And she means a lot to the Baltimore music community. She was just at my husband's party on the last day of February, and she looked great. (And I don't mean she looked great for having cancer - you couldn't tell she was ill at all.)

She'd been battling breast cancer, and it looked like she was winning. In March we found out it had spread to her brain and her spine. She's a neat lady, and this sucks. She's only 55.

I am so sorry, Balti. I hope she doesn't have to suffer much.
Hospice people have my utmost respect.

That's a tough situation. I hope your kindness helps your friend to feel little better.

Last rites (whatever they are) were issued today.

I'm so pissed off she didn't beat it. She fought hard and deserved to.

She always looked 10 or 15 years younger. This is the last picture we'll have.

This is from her benefit a few weeks ago.
