It's been a week since I received the news, it's about time I write about it.

Margrete Somerville, a dear friend of mine, recently passed away. Like practically all my other friends, I didn't see her often. I think the last time I saw her was ARCON last summer. I can still hear her voice in my mind. Always cheerful, she could tell me it'll work out and even in my depths of despair I'd believe her.

I think it's still sinking in. It's so incredibly unfair, but that's how life is. You never know who you are going to lose next. And it is a great loss. To me, to her family and friends, to the role-playing scene, and to humanity itself. We've lost someone who made the world a better place.

I have no idea what to say. I don't believe in an afterlife, so I can't comfort myself with the idea that she's in a better place. The idea of her no longer existing frightens me, but that's what I'm faced with.


How do you guys deal with death? The realization that you or a loved one will someday die? I've been thinking about death a lot lately..
