Yesterday a wonderful person I knew and drew inspiration from passed away. I didn’t know her as well or for as long as many other people in her community.
What a difference this one kindly soul has made. Not just to the people she has helped over the years, but also to the people she had recruited to pitch in with her various projects.
I met Eddie Dee years ago when I was a rookie news photographer. Over the years photographed her at many community events.
But it wasn’t until last year, after I left the newspaper 3 years earlier, that I realized what a gem she truly is.
