Today one of GirlMic/Leslie’s best friends from school called. She was upset about the fact that her brother had called to ask why she did not attend the the funeral. She did not know of her illness or death and she could not say anything else before breaking down in tears. Her mother got on the telephone as I explained that Leslie had been in a sedated state since being intubated and I did not know her password to her cell phone. Leslie and her friend had been in fellowship for forty years and this was to be no more.
