R.I.P Alicia Parlette

I was one of the readers who shared Alicia Parlette's journey into the world of cancer. I read the first column on a whim, and found myself glued to the journey. When I saw her photo on the cover of the Chronicle this morning, I knew the news couldn't be good. After living with cancer for five years, she passed away yesterday.

Years ago, she said,
"If I get through this, this story will help me remember the important moments along the way, the details, the dizzying emotions. And, in the worst of all circumstances, if I go through this life-changing ordeal and my body just wears out and I die, I will die a writer. The one thing I've always wanted to be."

May the Writer rest in peace.
