I previously posted in April about giving platelets. I've done it for years. My husband quipped recently that I've probably saved a lot of lives. I didn't save Deb's though. I met Deb at the Blood and Tissue Center in San Antonio years ago. She was in remission from Leukemia. It came back in November 2008 and she never left the hospital. She was a dynamic, beautiful person with a 9 year old daughter. And she was a great blogger and writer. She died on May 18 and I was deeply saddened when I read about her death that day through following her sister's blog.
I really miss her and think about her every day.
