There are no words to sum up how sad we all are to lose such a lovely person. Prayers for her family ascending.

I just don't know what to say or think since we were in the same state not very far away from each other I always thought of Vanilla Bean as a "close forum friend" that I might meet some day....I am profoundly saddened. My heart goes out to Mark and her family. Rest in Peace dear friend.
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

So sad. She was a good guy.

So sorry to hear the news. Words are so inadequate.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

That is very sad news. She was the one who, way back in 2009, inspired me to try and take better pictures of my food. I always loved looking at the foods she had prepared, and she was always very kind to everyone. My condolences to Mark and her family.
