We’ve met at my first big architectural company: I, a junior designer, and T – a project architect with 15 yrs practice. She helped me, she was my mentor and confidant. She gave me my first reference. We became friends, and continued to be for 16 years. On Monday I called to invite her and her husband to my son’s wedding.
The phone was discontinued.
I search my cell for her husband’s number – and when he answered, asked why T doesn’t pick up.
-She is gone, – he said. -Her cancer returned, and it was quick.
T. never smoked.
