Carolyn A Hudson, Aug 16 1963 – Aug 16, 2012
My friend and colleague Lynn Hudson died of a heart attack on her 49th birthday, yesterday.
49 is too young.
I’m shocked and immensely saddened by this news. I’m closer to some of my online family than I am to my real family, so when a buddy who especially understands your ‘obsession’ is taken away from you, it makes the heart heavy.
I met Lynn online and we quickly struck up a friendship, she was quirky, rude, irreverent, witty and a great writer. She was one of my earlier supporters and we became friends as I started out in this blogging world. Lynn was unconventional and you all know she hated Jill Zarin. We disagreed many times and had varied opinions, but we were able to put aside those differences as family should, and still remain human, civil and make each other laugh.
When I heard of her passing, I immediately broke down crying. The Real Housewives world has lost a great blogger, writer, troublemaker and twitter buddy; who was also a wife, mother, sister, friend and colleague.
My condolences to her family and friends.
I miss Lynn
