was such a great force of a person. When she asked me to write something about my experiences studying with Henry Holmes Smith I was hesitant but her editing was remarkable. I stopped by her place in the Village and she was so welcoming. She took a real interest in my stepson and engaged him in long conversation. I was just wondering how she was coping with her transition from being the leader she was to the elderly woman with reducing capacities. Sad she is not here to see all that is continuing to bloom from her efforts.
