I read today on a friend’s LiveJournal that Jeannie, who many of us met at the last reader party, died in her sleep on Saturday. I didn’t know that anyone from that circle of friends knew her, which made the shock of a young, healthy girl’s death all the stranger.
Jeannie was tall with long blonde hair. She was from Canada. I believe she was attending USC. When we met her, she was wearing a dress with cherries on it. She gave me her email address but I mislaid it.
My condolences to her friends and family.
EDIT: People who knew Jeannie are gathering tonight at Ground Control, where I gather she was a regular.
