On Sunday morning just after 9am I got the call I have been dreading about my wonderful, beautiful friend Sasha Fulop.  She had passed away after a courageous fight with cancer.  Even though I lost track of the times I cried while she was hospitalized & knew it would come to pass at some point, tears once again overcame me as I tried to sort through all the emotions I was feeling.  Even though you think you have prepared yourself for the inevitable the whole universe comes crashing down on you & your heart rips to pieces.  Sasha, who had become one of my my best friends since I shot her wedding was gone & I just couldn’t process it.  She was 33 & absolutely loved life.  I never heard her complain about her misfortune & she fought the fight like a tenacious pit bull, never believing she wouldn’t make it.   She loved to dance, eat sushi, dress fashionably, play Dominos,  enjoy good wine/ good food & anything to make you laugh.  She was beautiful in both mind & spirit & I will always love her & never forget her.   The first photo is the one I love the most & the rest are from the photo shoot I posted earlier on my blog.

Sasha was our team captain for  “Fight Like A Girl” entered in the the Dragon Boat Races the last two years.

RIP till we meet again!

    I new Sasha as a young girl when I worked for her dentist Dr. Oper. She was a lovely young lady then and grew up to be a beautiful woman. What a sad loss for so many people. My heart goes out to all her family and good friends but although we mourn her leaving us we must remember that she is now safe and sound in a beautiful, pain free place.
