A sweeter gal never lived. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Finally, she and Bob will be back together again. We did not know she was ill. She never mentioned it in her emails. God bless her and keep her.

She was/is and always will be one of a kind. A lovely woman and devoted to her family as they are to her. She and her family gave so many of us such great memories and friendship in Cambridge and beyond. My condolences to all of you.
