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."
