I have a number of blogs that I check into from time to time, some I have found by chance, a bunch that were recommended, some I even link on the right there. I've been reading a particular blog written by a girl called Gail for almost a year now and I'm not really sure what it was about it that grabbed me. She's just an average person in the states, who liked to fly planes with her man and take photos. That's what it was, I liked her photos.
Then all of a sudden 4 months ago her partner was diagnosed with cancer. He died yesterday aged 38.
I've never met these people yet feel somewhat connected having followed their story. It was hard opening their blog tonight knowing he would probably be gone.
