I am especially sorry for your loss and for the loss of others close to her.  I have long enjoyed her books.  Twice I was to Bristol to meet her, and twice something intervened. It was not to be, which seems odd to me now, since so many of her books were about breaking through barriers and impossible connections.

Diana died in her sleep last night at about five (GMT).  She was in St
Peter's Hospice in Bristol, after a short final illness, and her pain
was being controlled so that she was no longer hurting all the time.

The best friend ever I had.  I shall miss her.
