Usually celebrity deaths don’t hit me hard, but man she felt like a good friend and one of us, even though I never met her.

I just read "A Year of Biblical Womanhood" earlier this year, so I almost feel like I know her (as much as you do after reading a memoir/biography type book). I can't stop thinking about her babies. My heart just breaks for them. I also read about the last blog post she wrote on Ash Wednesday. I'm speechless.
