Her name is Jennifer and she was a long-time Lyme sufferer. She passed away in early June. Her last post on a Lyme Disease forum expressed how much she had fought against this disease, against the insurance companies, against people who did not understand. She spoke of being overwhelmed and depressed from illness and from fighting. And now she is gone.
I do not want to speculate how she died. Yet however she died, whether it was either directly or indirectly from Lyme, she left behind family and friends who loved and lost due to this debilitating disease. It speaks volumes to me that her family has asked for donations to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS.org), in lieu of flowers. Even after she is gone, she still fights for Lyme Awareness.
RIP Jennifer, may you be in a place without pain.
