  • She was a lovely person and I wish I had had the chance to know her better. We were first cousins, but the only times I got to see her were for rare family reunions, or funerals. I remember we had a lively conversation about boats, of all things–yachts–the last time I saw her, which was at a family reunion at Ischoda Yacht Club. I think she had bought a yacht recently at that time?? I remember her as a shy and thin child at those family reunions at Uncle Tom’s place, the one with the big back yard and the round above-ground pool we kids loved so much What a smile she had. My love to her family, especially “little sister” Barbara Jean. XXX Anne Canevari Green

  • Dear Jackie, I am sorry to hear about your mom passing. I did not have much contact with her since she moved out of Embassy towers. I was her neighbor from third floor. RIP
