Today I need to take a moment to say good-bye to a friend. A fine needlewoman, artist, dressmaker, and photographer. I will miss our random lunches and learning new things from you. Most of all I will miss your intelligence and dry sense of humor. It was an honor to know you. Requiescat in Pace.
In accordance with a promise I made while she was still alive, I am refraining for ever putting her name on the internet. Thanks for understanding.
