Death in the blog family

I've confirmed news from elwood. The redoubtable Jazzy, known in her non-blog life as Patricia St. Onge, died in her Hot Springs home this morning. She was 76, according to Gross Funeral Home, which will be handling funeral arrangements. The funeral home should have her listed on its website later this afternoon so that friends may post a remembrance.

Our thoughts go out to Frenchie and the rest of the family. She joined us for our joyous election night watch party in 2008. (Thanks to Hugh Mann for reminding me I took a picture of Jazzy that night.)

I also still remember how thrilled she was when somebody stopped her in a Hot Springs grocery store. She was wearing a jacket with "Jazzy" stenciled on the back.

"Are you THE Jazzy from the Arkansas Blog?" she was asked.

Indeed she was.
