Suzette Haden Elgin, 1936-2015

My mother died today, possibly last night. I heard about it at 3:18 a.m.

She’s been gone for so long, it seems silly to be grieving now, but I can’t help it. We knew she would not recover, that there was really no hope that her mental function would return, but I guess as long as she lived there was some possibility that my mother was still in there somewhere.

She was a remarkable woman.
