Very Sad News

Manolo says, the Manolo has just received this very sad email from the sister of his internet friend The Debutaunt.

Dearest Manolo,

Alas, I must share news that is sad. Your internet friend, The Debutaunt, recently lost her battle against leukemia.

On behalf of her family, I want to thank the Manolo and your readers for the support given to her in trying times. Debby wrote a final blog post when she knew she was going to die as a way of reaching out to the various internet friends she’s made over the years. I felt I should forward it because it has meaning to me, and I figure it may have meaning to others who cared about her. The Manolo can find it here: www.debutaunt.com .

Even in the end, when she was confined to the bed, she still remained superfantastic. I think the both of us watched just about every episode of “What Not to Wear” because Bravo was one of the few channels worth watching at the hospital. Half the fun of that show is commenting on when we disagree with Stacy and Clinton, or believe the haircuts were change for the sake of change and not flattering. The fashion is much better TV to watch in the hospital than the news.

Grazie molte,
Steph, Deb’s sister

Please remember Deb and her family in your prayers and thoughts, and please also remember that Deb’s 9-year-old daughter will need our help in more concrete ways.

    Such sad news–and all my sympathies to the Debutaunt’s family.

    But Manolo, the link to the Debutaunt’s website doesn’t work. Is this something you can fix?
