Here's to a woman who led a very fruitful life. It was a privilege to know someone who was both knowledgeable and kind. For someone who professed that she was not a good cook, Vega and Bo hosted wonderfully intimate dinners filled with delightful conversation. She should have entered a competition for the making of gravlox. Her pragmatic view of world issues was well thought out providing a great basis for book club discussion.
I miss your wry smile, Vega. You will be greatly missed.
Our thoughts are with you, Bo, Curt, and Carol.

Lynn and Fred Ladd
