Cathy Seipp, a writer whom I admire both for the reach of her work and of her self, has passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She will be fondly remembered.
UPDATE: I wrote the above post yesterday after reflecting on the many people commenting on Cathy’s condition. To my deep regret, I inadvertently published the post– rather than saving it as a draft to be published later, as I originally intended– prior to Cathy’s passing. I am truly sorry for this error and any pain caused to Cathy’s friends and family.
