I was saddened to learn of Libby's death. Today I was going through a drawer and found the last letter she wrote me--February 27, 2009. In it she discussed her upcoming move, and wrote at length about her daffodils, and other interests, and commented on an article I had sent her. I didn't have a forwarding address and sadly, we lost touch.
I knew her for years as a supporter of Protect Our Woods, and she became a friend and mentor to me. A few years ago she had given me a pot made by her daughter, and I use it almost daily, never failing to think of Libby when I do. I am so grateful to have known her--she was an inspiration and a hero. I'm sure you will miss her, as those of us who knew her have missed her. My sympathy to all the family.
Libby will be very much missed. She was an inspiration and a joy to all that
experienced her presence. I loved talking to her since her interests were varied. I enjoyed her love of art, horticulture, enviroment and life.
Dear Karl: We (Tony Moore and Joanne Shaver--classmates of yours in public school a million years ago in Bloomington) were so sorry to read in the Bloomington paper that your mother had died. We know she was an inspiration to many people. We send our condolences and hope to see you at her memorial in April. Our thoughts are with you. Joanne: firstname.lastname@example.org and Tony: email@example.com
Barbara, losing a mother is a very tough thing to go through. But it is clear to see she lived her life very well and no doubt was at peace having fulfilled her mission(s) in such astounding ways. You were certainly one of her greatest works. Warm hugs and kisses to you and the family.
Katharine: My thoughts are with you during this time following your mother's passing. When I see the spring flowers this year I'll think about her. I have missed seeing you the past few years when you visited your mother here in Bloomington.
Best wished to you and your family.
