Decided to come out of retirement just to make a post about some sad news. Around years 2002-2004, and I say "around" because my memory is failing me about the exact timing, I was very close to Alissa Montréal. We had a very special friendship that lasted a few years, went on trips together, have been confidents, helped each other about different things in our business and personal life's, etc. Things evolved and we eventually got each in a different direction, but we would both stay in contact via email once or twice every few years.
I recently tried to contact her with no result. I was somewhat worried as we were always both very happy to hear about the other, and I got worried she didn't replied. I then made a search on her real name on the Internet...
Very sad news... Alissa passed away due to cancer in August 2015 (and based on a picture, I know for sure it's her)
I figure some people she got to know here, women and men, would like to know, hence this post.
