Born April 30, 1956
Died January 21, 2007
I just learned that my good friend Barbara Seranella, 50, a bestselling mystery author, died peacefully yeserday at the Cleveland Clinic with her husband Ron and her brother Dr. Larry Shore at her side. She was waiting for a third liver transplant. We were emailing back and forth just ten days ago.
I knew she was really, really sick, and it didn't look good, but if you thought that was the end of the story, you didn't know Barbara. She was the most stubborn person I know. And the most generous. She helped me out when I was nobody and she had no reason to. We toured together. I've stayed at her house. I loved her.
Rest in peace, Barbara.
