Lest We Forget: Star C Foster 1973-2006

December 12, 2006 — 4 Comments

Terrible news overnight that Star C Foster has passed away. Star was one of the first contributors to The Blog Herald, and although I only knew her from our email correspondence, her writing spoke volumes for the wonderful person she was. She only contributed to The Blog Herald for a short time before moving on to bigger and better things, including gigs for the Gothamist Network, Shiny Media, and a whole pile of other sites as well. Sarcasmo’s Corner was one of the first blogs I ever read on a regular basis, and on it you could see her personality shining through. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends, she’ll be missed by more people than you’ll ever realise. Indeed, I’m not sure exactly when she started blogging, but I’d think she would be pretty close to being a pioneer, certainly she was there in 2002, and was probably blogging longer than that. I say in all sincerity that I hope she truly does Rest in Peace, as someone who gave so much joy to others should surely deserve to, although it goes without saying that she was taken from this world far too early, and far too young. We won’t forget you Star.
