I set up this small memorial in my apartment and photographed it in commemoration. The photograph was taken when she was in colłege or med school.

Oh, Phoebe…I am following along as you walk this walk of grief and anguish from the appropriate distance.
I am imagining the suddenness of this from your perspective and that of Carolyn’s. I am imagining you two– having the healing power of a last goodbye, in your dream space through the power of your grief…
I am holding the painful fact that many of us get tortured in the last weeks of our life; hence sudden and dramatic death (only 7% of us) eventually being seen as the hard and confusing blessing that it is…
I am holding you–ongoing–in Love and Light.

My comment should read Phoebe
Phone, my deepest and .most heartfelt condolences on Lynnie’s passing..
I reflect on being one of the youngest in the crowd of the Round Hill/Millbrook crew. Memories are a beautiful thing….
I’m sorry for your loss Phoebe, my thoughts are with you. x
Phoebe, I’m sorry for your terrible loss. Your memorial is a beautiful tribute.
Phoebe I am sad and sorry for your loss.
My heart is so full, I don’t know what to say. I just wish I could be there with you right now.
When I was six years old, my mother gave birth to twin girls. I felt like they were my own babies. I also have younger stepsisters that are twins. They were in my life beginning when I was four years old.
As we all grew up, I saw, up close, the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, of being a twin. So I know, as much as a non-twin can know, what twinship is.
So beautiful xoxoxo
