Two deaths this week have caused more distress than any in long while. Both women died without my ever knowing them but somehow it felt significant. One was the death of Natasha Richardson. Perhaps it was the way it was reported. I like Liam Neeson, too, so I felt a twinge of his and their children's pain.
The other was the death of an 18 y.o., home on spring break. She was at the 7-11 on 15th / W. Colorado Ave, filling her car with gas. Someone ran into the car behind her and trapped her between her car and the gas pump. A huge gas fire ensued and no one could get to her. In a relative instant, doing something as innocuous as gassing her car to prepare for a mtn trip with the friend sitting in the passenger seat, and she was gone. Very tragic for many people.
