Dear Kossacks, I am so sorry to report that our beloved drchelo has passed away. Panicbean reported her passing here.. In real life, drchelo was Conseulo Murray, MD. Many of you know that she fought a long and brave battle with cancer.

She was a lover of animals, a garden blogger, a wonderful member of this community, and a great human being. My prayers are for her family and for the animals she left behind. You can make a donation in her honor to the Stray Dog Organization here.

May she rest in eternal peace. I will add to this diary, but I wanted to put up a condolence thread.

Here is a link to her obituary notice in theDallas Morning News. She passed away on June 20th at the age of 57.

Here is a link to a letter to the editor that she wrote to the Dallas Morning News in 2005. it is entitled "Can't Believe Bush."

Here is a picture of drchelo from the straydog.org website:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
