I originally started this blog as a way to work out my own feelings about what happened to my best friend. I quickly realized that family and friends were interested in reading memories of Kell. And perfect strangers were touched by her story as well.
I don't post on a regular schedule, but when the mood strikes or when there's a relevant news item or event I want to advertise. If you look back through the archives you'll see that I frequently post to this blog in the fall, because I find the anniversary of Kell's death (and her birth, actually) to be very difficult.
If you are just joining us and want to read some of the best posts from the archives, here area few of my favorites. Some are funny, some are sad, but all of them reveal that Kell is dearly missed.
This beautiful news article was published by Sue Montgomery after Kell's murder was found guilty at trial. Sue did a great job reporting on what happend at the courthouse. This editorial from Montreal sportswriter Jack Todd is also worth reading.
