Today I said goodbye to a friend and colleague. Karla was only 50 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. You know how some people just fill a room with their smile and positive attitude? That was Karla. She didn’t complain. She laughed. She didn’t whine. She loved.
I only knew Karla from working with her, but it was easy to tell that she lived her life to the fullest.
I tried to stay in contact with Karla when she went on leave. I imagine she was pretty bored at the start of it. We played Words With Friends, and she kicked my ass every single game. Except one. I think she was just toying with me to let me win.
I’d give anything to have a rematch.
