I apologize for not posting yet this month. Life has been incredibly busy leading up to today when I flew back to BC for the holiday season. However, shortly after I landed, I received an e-mail from my school saying that a fellow labmate and friend has passed away in a car accident while driving home from Ontario to South Dakota for her birthday and Christmas break. She was someone I shared trips with during our field courses in Ottawa and St. Louis. Her project involved studying raspberry pollination in Algonquin and given her interest in entomology, she was someone I can share my insect collection stories with, as well as our common interests in animals, graphic novels, fictional novels, and movies. She is definitely someone I have a lot of admiration for, and someone that I will miss a lot.
Rest in peace, Sarah.
I wish everyone safe travels during the holiday season.
With a heavy heart,
