Much has been written about ‘virtual communities’ and online friendships. I could write a long post and tell you how it’s very easy to develop lasting and meaningful friendships online, that carry over into ‘real life’ as well, but today is not the day for that. Earlier this week, a friend of mine, Bill Lublin, came home to find that the love of his life had passed away far too soon. Sheila Lublin will be laid to rest this morning at 10 am, and LoCoMusings is going dark today in her honor. Bill requested that his friends in the blogging world take the day to spend with their families, appreciating the blessings in our respective lives, and that is what I will be doing.
I had the distinct pleasure of spending time with Sheila twice this year; once in Washington DC and once in San Francisco. She was a wonderful, loving woman, and words can’t describe the vastness of this loss. The real estate community has set up a fund to donate to the American Cancer Society in Sheila’s memory, which can be found here. If you could, take a moment today to say a prayer for Bill and family.
Peace and love,
