Retirement

Dorothy, thank you for those sweet comments about my  friend Adrienne Zeigler. I was fortunate to know Adrienne as a brilliant, tranquil young woman who cherished her life ...even during the devastation of her illness.  I admired her maturity, savvy,  and quiet humor. I depended on her loyal support in the newly integrated environment.
