I am stunned by how sad I still am. I wept in the bathroom at my church & was found by 2 friends who wept too.

I didn't know her. She was my first guiding light, and I followed her work for 10 years. Met her several times, but we weren't friends. I feel guilty for grieving so intensely when I know folks like @mike are in mourning for their actual friend.

If anyone out there is struggling today, I'm over here in Alabama, with you.

I'm so grateful for her life and work. 💔

@Melissa She touched so many people's lives; I'm sure she wouldn't want you to feel guilty for feeling her loss. Mourning is definitely appropriate, even for those of us who only ever knew her through her work. I'm deeply shocked and saddened despite really only knowing her through her interviews on various podcasts. She was a dearly-loved inspiration for us all 😭
