Farewell to Jessica Roark

News on Jessica Roark's death came this morning:

Tribute to Jessica in the Kansas City Star (9/19/10)

Jessica Roark has appeared at least twice before in this blog -

I want to claim Jessica's quote from her 2008 interview as advice for my life:
“Sometimes I think about what happens if I die, but you can’t think like that,” she said. “You have to live your life however you want to live it. You can’t plan for a car accident tomorrow, but you’re going to get in your car anyway.”

Thank you for all you did for the world, Jessica, and for living your life however you wanted to live it. May we all do the same.

That's too bad, Teri. I am sorry about this. Damn cancer, anyway.
