Our heartfelt sympathy. We will miss seeing her in the halls at Beltrone. Years ago, I (Ora) participated in the writing group here. She always shared uplifting, cheerful essays. She had a delightful, unusual sense of humor and outlook on life. Most of all, please remember, she loved you all TREMENDOUSLY and was so very proud of you as well.
