I am so deeply saddened to read of Emily's passing. My heart-felt condolences to the Shalit and Gelpi families. Emily and I exchanged several letters many moons ago and saw each other when she visited Willa at Oberlin College, and I had the honor and privilege of visiting with Willa, Emily and Mandy during the Summer on Martha's Vineyard way back then, when we all went together to visit precious Mother Nancy in the hospital before her passing. She was always a beautiful, kind, gentle, incredibly wonderful soul, with an abundance of inner and outer beauty, and the wisdom to perfectly compliment it. We will miss her terribly, but heaven is blessed to have such a special angel. God Bless!
