PCV Stephanie Chance passed away this week during her service. She was serving in Niger, though I'm not sure how she died. The official statement from PC is here. Reading her blog is surreal, knowing that things she was looking forward to are not to be, that the home she was setting up will not be lived in, and that her family had unknowingly said goodbye to her for the last time. It reminds me that nothing is a given, nothing is to be taken for granted, and anything can happen.
