First one thing and then another led me to this realization: It's been five years since our beloved friend, lorie945
, passed away. It was March 27, 2009 when her husband posted
to let us know she'd died.
What led me to this realization was, first, claudia603
's post today in which she mentioned the bookbinder who made the special book we gave to lorie945
in July 2007, second, my own realization that (horrors!) I'd never posted my own contribution to that project to the AO3, which I remedied immediately. Doing that led me to the lories_friends
community that we set up to organize the creation and publishing of the "For Lorie" book. And eventually it dawned on me that lorie945
had indeed passed away in March, the 27th of March 2009 to be exact. Just a couple of days ago.
Click on the LJ cut tag if you're feeling nostalgic. I'm going to post some pics I've still got of the book and perhaps some other things. And I want to also acknowledge that since the time we made the "For Lorie" book, two of its contributors have also passed away: slipperieslope

I miss lorie945
and think of her often. I have a picture of her on my refrigerator and look at it all the time. If I'm feeling pretty good about myself, it makes me happy. If maybe I'm not pleased with something I've done or not done or said, well, it gives me a little rap on my conscience. I'm so glad to have known her.
Please feel free to share any thoughts or memories of lorie945
if you're feeling in the mood.
