    Marsha and Linda, I was saddened by the loss of your much beloved mother. She was an independent, and courageous woman, with a sharp intellect, an innate curiosity and an open mind.

It was thanks to your mother that you became what you are - generous to a fault, equally at home anywhere in the world, and a very dear close friends for life. With much love and affection.
