I Think I Can… I Think I Can…

Goodbye, Karla.

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.

KarlaI only knew Karla from working with her, but it was easy to tell that she lived her life to the fullest.

I’d give anything to have a rematch.
