A friend passes ...

 It's been a few years since I reluctantly paused this journal, but it still gets a fair number of views and I still remember the blogging experience very fondly.  One of the best things about writing Daily Montana was that I made some real friends during the process, some of which I've kept in touch with for years.  One of the best was a woman named Joey, who lived in Northern Idaho but had a passion for Montana in general and Fort Benton in particular.  I really enjoyed getting to know her, and always looked forward to our conversations.

Joey passed away yesterday, and it seems fitting that I say goodbye to her here.  Rest well, Joey ... it was great to know you.

This is a photo of Joey and her partner, who looks like he would have been great to know, too.
