She was smart and funny and the second girl I ever kissed. We fell out of touch before her diagnosis, I spoke to her online a few times but never saw her again. I'll always treasure the great memories I have with her.

If you are located in New York City or surrounding areas, and want to be involved in an AMAZING project called the Good Grief Journal project that will not only help you but others deal with grief, please join our meetup.com group, called The New York Good Grief Journal Project.
Memory-of.com is creating a project that we would like this support group to participate in. The project point is for 3000+ people to join together and share stories of overcoming grief and bereavement. The project is sponsored by Memory-of.com. A journal goes out and is only sent to people interested in sharing a story. As the book moves along more of the journal is filled up and more stories are shared. It can be completely anonymous.
100 journals go out. You may do a:

You may take up to 5 pages and 1 week.
When the Journal is done, it comes back to us to archive and start the project again. With words and art we are looking to help people grieve one journal at a time.
I just lost my mom to breast cancer. So the more grief I feel, the more active I get. If I didn’t do this, I would feel very depressed.
So, in honor of my mom, I am doing some special fundraising. Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, the folks at Respectance are providing a link to charities. Any donations made to breast cancer linking through the site go 100% to the charities you chose. They do not take a service fee.
In case you aren't aware many “umbrella” charities take 20% as administration fees, and telemarketers take up to 80% of your donations. Please consider setting up a tribute, and invite your friends to come and donate.
