(Amended June 24, 2007.)

Elyse Perez' mother, Jane Seiden Bond, died earlier today, around 4:30 in the afternoon. She was only 52... The memorial service is scheduled for Monday; the family will sit shivah through Tuesday.

I never knew Mrs. Bond very well, but I was at her home often enough, and we spoke at length on occasion. Considering who her daughter was, she was, shall we say, attuned.

She probably just thought me a perv for spending all that time under her roof with Elyse (who is and shall ever be 22 years my junior), but she never voiced a concern. Groans of exasperation, no doubt, but never a harsh word. "Strange," to paraphrase Lester Bangs, "knows reptilian strange."

Another sad day.
