A classmate from the University of San Francisco recently passed away after a 12-year fight with kidney cancer. Try as I might, I can't remember Dee-Jade, but Doc Robertson wrote a touching tribute over at his blog
Rest in peace Dee-Jade. my heart goes out to her husband. I can't even imagine.
Here's the obituary that ran April 3 in the San Francisco Chronicle.
The last piece is wonderful: Dee wanted to create a fund to assist young people with cancer completing higher education. Donations, in lieu of flowers, will go towards the fund.
