Unfortunately she's been struggling with lung cancer for 5 years (after being given 6 months by the doctors), and for the last few days things haven't been looking good. It's just wrong that she and her daughter and all her family and friends have to go through this. She's a funny, perceptive writer, and on a personal level, she's never been less than kind and encouraging to me. She's known for not suffering fools gladly, but for whatever reason, in my case she's always made an exception.
God bless Cathy Seipp.
P.S. Welch has some great photos.
P.P.S. I'm seeing notes here and there that she's already died, but until Maia or somebody else who's actually there makes some kind of announcement, I refuse to talk about her in the past tense.Posted by Jim Treacher at March 20, 2007 01:12 PM
