My lovely girl died

I tried posting this on my personal blog/site and it crashed in a really nasty way — repairing that is going to take ages. As well as other things.

The thing is: my girlfriend passed away on July 7, on the 52d day in hospital and care — a second brainstem stroke proved to be unsurmountable (is that a word?). I don’t have words for how I feel about this (and somehow I still have to share…).

So now I am designing cards and ads featuring ‘her’ font: National Light (are you reading this, Kris?).

1954–2012 (that’s still running ok)

Bert, this is heart breaking. I am speechless. I hope you have strong and supportive people in your life, especially offline.

I'm very sad for you, and I can't imagine how I would feel. It's very brave of you to share.

This post is so sad Bert. I can't imagine how you must be feeling. Try to be strong - one day in the future the weight will be lifted off your shoulders. Miep was obviously very talented.
