Today's StarHeart Tuesday is a specially hard one for me. This weekend a dear friend lost her battle to cancer. Jaison was a young woman in the prime of her life. I mean, talk about perfect. She was gorgeous, kind, more fun than a tree full of monkeys, and smart as a whip. She was the whole package, and we were friends for over twenty years. She was there for me when I went through my own battle with cancer four years ago. And it was comforting to have a friend like her by my side, who understood what I was going through at the time.
Jaison was a great supporter of the Starcrossed series. She was one of the original StarHearts. She was always passing my books on to friends, family, people in the grocery store...you name it. She even came close to getting it set up as a movie once at Sony, where she worked as an attorney. She believed in me so much, and I was never really sure what I did to deserve her.
I already miss her terribly. Rest in peace, sweet girl.
