Remembering our friend Stephanie Forbes, whose life was cut short all too short in an instant. Her stress from being outed by everyone and estranged by all in her family left her feeling as if those who loved her only did so conditionally. It left her without a job and a family and it left her very, very alone. I miss her very much but take heart that she had made some wonderful friends in the transgender community. She especially said that she looked towards my spouse and to me with great respect, admiration and love for the hope that we brought to her. Her life will live on through our wonderful memories of times shared together both virtually and when we met. Her profile and pictures live on and it feels like only yesterday that we said our last goodbyes.
