Our dear Charlotte never shies away from difficult topics. She would not want her friends to tiptoe around on this one. She announced her terminal cancer diagnosis and then moved forward living each day in its turn. She told me she’d deal with it when she had to. Now, she is in her last days.
As much as we all would like to do something or say something to change the inevitable I am reminded of the advice Charlotte gives most often and we all need most now: “breathe.”
And then, we all know, she would laugh at all the drama and scold the dogs for barking.
