Chris Eldin Memoriam

Chris Eldin, aka takoda, aka rhinothongbutt, aka Church Lady, was lost to the world in August of 2012. She was part of a community of authors, editors, and bloggers for several years. Always cherished. Witty, irreverent, and kind.

This is a simple collection of some of the reactions to her passing that have been made publicly. Please notify me of further entries I should be made aware of.

Thanks for collecting these. I'll have something to add in the next few days. So much to think about. So much to say. And no words seem sufficient.
