When you've been blogging for awhile and trading comments with your fellow bloggers, it seems you get to know them. Although you may never meet, a friendship develops. Today, I mourn the loss of another elder blogger, Joycelyn Ward, the author of Maya's Granny . She had been living and writing in Juneau, Alaska until her by-pass operation last winter. She never fully recovered from surgery and passed away Sunday, June 15.
