Popular UK blogger Charlotte Kitley – known to her readers as Charley – died Tuesday. She debuted her blogger site, Life as a Semi-Colon, after being diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer, 2 years ago. Her blog was subsequently picked up by The Huffington Post, in the UK.
Her final post, And so there must come an end, published on her passing at age 36, is a testament to the loving humanity of someone who embraced life – and faced her own mortality – with a fortitude born of hope, and her love for those she leaves behind. And delivered with a modestly simple grace.
