There's a rumor she died. Anyone know?
Hi Roger,Yep, it's true. Cancer got at her sacrum, spine and lower abdomen. A rough way to go. She fought it all the way, but in the end we had to have her on monster amounts of painkillers as bone pain is a particular bitch.
Sweet V was a very good buddy. We had lots of fun together . . . and that great big smile of hers cheered everyone up.
Currently, I pick her up keeping an eye on me via the cat!
On the Montessori teaching gig . . . she loved it, but when "the system" of the NYC Ed Dept insisted that all school teacher had to be or have had vaccinations against everything known to man or beast . . . she backed off. Her father was a doctor, She had no records of what she might or might not have had as a child.
She ended up as Director of Benefits for the NYC MTA.
For those interested in being reminded of her smile see us in the workshop we did for Tutors in NYC dealing with the materials in our book, on the Seven Barriers to Comprehension and Learning.
