Unexpected Passing

One of our group (the Sac crowd) is gone. Jen came into the crowd young (in both body and attitude), at faire. She was dating a couple of different people over time, most memorably for me, Jeff. It was a weird time, back when Suzi and I were living on T Street. There were a couple of Jens in the group, and she quickly became Chihuahua Jen for her small, thin, and highly strung manner. I shared my 21st birthday party with her at her house in Folsom. She was turning 18 either the same day or 2 days before. It was one of those oddly legendary parties, where Tiffany had just graduated, but was drinking too much Goldschlager and threw up in the hot tub. Turns out, Rick helped her to the bathroom, back before I knew who Rick was. There were tons of strawberries because I loved them. Will brought his frat boy paddle and folks took turns at the spankings. There was dancing. It's still vivid, but it was 10 years ago.

When Anne and Kier broke up, Jen and Kier got together. (And Anne and Mario got togther, and it was really better matches all around.)They got married and had a couple kids apparently. They drifted away from the group. For reasons I don't yet know, Jen hung herself in the garage.

I'm going to Friday Night Waltz, dancing my legs off, soaking up all of the joy that life has to offer, and sucking the marrow out of life.

For we may and might never all meet here again...
