Still numb from hearing about the news. I might re-post later.
I was close friends with Chandra during graduate school. As honest, caring and fearless a person as I have known. Quick to offer a Merlot and some Tom Yum soup for a friend having a bad day. “Buffy” and the Simpsons will never be the same.
Given the times we live in, her sharp brand of kindness is needed more than ever. The world was better with Chandra in it, and the world needs a Chandra still.
I will really miss my friend.
