Topic: marjorie cole

One month ago my wife Marjorie died from the unmitigated ravages of cholangiocarcinoma following a deeply difficult year of radiation, several chemo regimens, travel to medical centers in Minnesota and in Washington state, big and minor surgical procedures---often followed by infection and incision wounds not healing properly.  She was 56. There really aren't words. 'Bereft' is so inadequate. It's a loss that seems unbearable.

She had been strong, athletic, and adventurous.  A backpacking trip in Patagonia had been planned.  She was a writer and an activist.  A book of her poetry is due to be published soon and a novel (her second) will appear later. One of several obituaries is at  bellwetherprize.org

Dear Pat,

I have read some of the obituaries and it is clear that the world is a lesser place without your Marjorie, I am so sorry she was taken from you. Poetry has helped me greatly as I have mourned my mother, I can't wait to read Marjorie's work.
