Goodbye, Kay Olson

Long time “Alas” readers may remember Kay Olson, aka Blue, whose blog The Gimp Parade I linked to frequently. Kay was one of my favorite bloggers, and I learned a lot from her. But she stopped updating The Gimp Parade in 2012, and I lost track of her.

Facing a lack of adequate nursing care, and concerned about the burden her care was on her parents, Kay decided to move to hospice care in April, and passed away on June 12th. (Thanks to Bean for letting me know).

It’s infuriating to think of how things might have been different for Kay in a society with better health care.

The world is better because Kay’s voice was in it for a while.
