You can learn a lot about people by how they treat complete strangers. Cathy Seipp returned all my annoying personal emails over the years. That she took the time to offer professional advice to someone she didn't know--while fighting a battle against cancer--meant very much to me. I'm not surprised in the least at the amount of friends who were at her side at the end of her life, nor at the outpouring of emotion that can be read all over the internet right now. May she rest in peace.
