Today’s post was prompted by another blogger who lost an online friend in February this year. Sarah Horton, who blogs at Being Sarah writes warmly and affectively about her friendship with Rachel Cheetham Moro, of The Cancer Culture Chronicles.
The amazing way in which Sarah recently worked with Rachel’s mother to turn Rachel’s blog into a book sets a gold standard for memorialisation in cyberloss. Even though I never knew Rachel, and only came to ‘know’ her through blog posts written by Sarah and others about her, I am inspired by the way in which this great act has happened.
It’s not usually my way to comment on the work of others who are dealing with cyberloss. (Mainly because there’s not much work out there that I know of.) I just thought this would be a wonderful thing to share with you, my friends, and help to spread what Sarah and others call ‘the gospel of Rach’ a bit further.
‘Normal’ service will resume on Sunday, in the meantime, please check out Sarah’s post about the book, and maybe a few more of her posts about Rach.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
