John Witherow, Marie Colvin's editor, recently said this of her: "She was much more than a war reporter. She was a woman with a tremendous joie de vivre, full of humour and mischief and surrounded by a large circle of friends, all of whom feared the consequences of her bravery." I was one of those friends, who never ceased to worry about what might one day happen to her.
