Last night we had a goodbye party for her that turned into total chaos, although I still think people enjoyed themselves. In our living room and dining room I'd say we had over 50 guests at once. Maybe more like 75. It was sweet to see how much people value and love her-- children, teens, people our age, "grown-ups" and wiser.
I think this next season (week? few weeks? month? we'll see) will be challenging as I adjust to living and working without her.
