Thank you for letting me know. Having just returned from China -- a trip Ann made possible just because of a sequence of events -- I'd not not read newspapers yet.

 

 

 Ann and I were getting reacquainted through our mutual interests in health and the arts. I was with Ann at a Sunday symphony as one of her many "student" guests. She and Dr. Andrew In talked about his upcoming trip to China; I asked if there were room for one more and was pleased to find that there was.  Because of Ann, I went with Dr. In's extended family on a most extraordinary tour.

Before I left I promised Ann that I would work with her to serve her now infamous deck dinner parties--it having become more difficult recently for her to do everything herself because of the painful arthritis. How life expanding that would have been. During the flight home I was writing the mental "thank you," acknowledging her part in the whirlwind of the past month and how I was looking forward to seeing more of her. We arrived home July 7. The mental note not written.
