    1. I was sorry to learn of Milena’s loss–what a vibrant, talented, lovely, large-spirited person she was. I wish I could make the memorial, but will be too far out of town. Condolences to the many who loved her. And, Georgialee, I’ve been thinking of you…would love to hear from you, if you would be so kind. susanwisewalker@yahoo.com
