    She sounds like someone I would have like to have known. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

    She was a real peach, even if slightly rotten.

    Was that true, that they don’t give kidneys to fat people? Did she consider weight loss or was she just not interested? Kinda scary if she could help herself but didn’t. I didn’t know her, never heard of her, but the Internet is huge so I’m not surprised. Sorry you lost your friend. I’m going off to eat a bowl of lettuce (ice cream) now.

      Sadly, it’s true. TL had various health issues that prevented her ability to lose the weight necessary to receive a kidney transplant. It wasn’t for lack of trying.

    Tracy Lynn was one of the most profane, insane, and quietly kind people in the world. She could incite rage or hysterical laughter without blinking.

    When my mother passed away, TL volunteered to skip dialysis and drive FOUR HOURS NORTH to attend the funeral with me. You know, so I “would have a friend close by”. We never met face to face, and that offer was sent without hesitation. I had known her (online) for less than a year at the time. I will never forget her kindness.

    I will love her forever, and miss her until my last day on earth.

      She was so like that. A total gem and always there when you needed a friend, a laugh, a hand to hold, or a sharp jab to get moving. She thought the world of you.

    So very sorry, it sounds like she was a wonderful person ( & funny too). What a loss.

    Well said. I met Tracy when I was in high school. She was always snarky and brilliant and fabulous. I will miss her terribly. It seems I’m in good company.

    Thanks for posting her words, Adam. They made me laugh. She definitely sounded like a kick-ass chick. I’m sorry the world has lost her. :( Sending you much love!

    Thank you for such a great tribute. The “cranky old black man from a barbershop” comment was probably the only laugh I had yesterday. I am simply heartbroken.

    I loved reading these. Thank you for posting them! Kap had a knack with words and profanity and god damn I loved her. Thanks for being one of her people, A.

    After Kaply passed, I too went through my email archives and all the comments she left on my blog. Sad to lose such a witty, unique thinker when the world seems to be in such short supply.
