Right now, there is no other way to say this
Leslie Harpold passed away a few days ago due to complications from bronchitis. I have no words for how I feel right now. None. She was the best person I have ever known, in every possible sense of the word. She was the kind of person you got to know instantly, from the first sentence she said to you. She gave great hugs, awesome advice, and if she ever did your chart... well, then you already know. I need to get my act together and post something proper. This is no good.
I believe that nothing happens to us after death. Nothing. But if I'd known this was going to happen, I would have found a way to build a heaven for you, Leslie. Just for you.
She was one of the first people I knew online, back in the Netslaves days. She even got me an editing job once.
She was one of those really good people you meet online, people who are generous and kind, yet you never meet. She is one of those people who will truly be missed. Maybe it's strange to feel a loss from someone you haven't talked to in years, never met, but there is that loss. The world is going to miss her
