Longtime E2 user, editor, and administrator grundoon passed away earlier today.

Over the years she devoted countless hours to our community, sharing her wonderful and insightful writing with us, helping users new and old write better, and working tirelessly behind the scenes as an admin to keep the site going.

She was also part of one of E2's great love stories, winning the heart of the inimitable wertperch and inspiring him to leave his native England and start a new life on American shores.

Battling cancer for the past seven years, she generously chronicled her illness here on the site with awe-inspiring grace, humility, and humor.

We are forever grateful for all that Chris gave us in her time with us here at E2, and we miss her more than any words can say. We will cherish the writings she left here for us more than gold.

Much love to wertperch and the rest of her family and friends, from all of us.
