It wasn’t a pleasure trip. I went for my cousin’s funeral. She was a brilliant woman, successful at everything she put her mind to; business, writing, real estate. She was writing her doctoral when this happened. Despite her long-time illness, she would travel around the world over and over, and she was a mile-and-point junkie (which I only found out by accident, since she lived in Europe and we didn’t talk all too much). Rest in Peace Valerie. Rest in Peace.
