I just found this recently after thinking about her. Professor Driver inspired me in so many ways. She was feisty and spirited. She really cared about her students. I kept signing up for her classes even after I filled my requirements. I wound up with a double major. Eventually I pursued a career in human services. My condolences to the Driver family and friends.

I am sending my dearest thoughts and condolences to the Driver family.

Alooben and I were not related, but I will always think of her as an elder sister. I knew we would be close friends the day we met. The past 30 years of my life would not be the same without her. Even after I moved away, I would think of her everyday. I will miss her forever. Anytime I needed her she was always there. I remember when she would come to my house and we would sip tea on the kitchen counter while chatting about our days. Alooben would provide me with wisdom and insight that no one else could give. Her sense of humor would lift my spirits when I had bad days. She was loving and caring to all my family. I wanted to visit her but my circumstances would not allow me to. She remains in our hearts eternally. May her soul rest in peace.

My prayers and thoughts are with Ed, Sherna, Shanta, and Cyrus as we all remember and cherish the memories of family times. We are giving tribute to Aloo in Washington, DC as we were unable to travel to Massachusetts to give our personal tributes. I have often looked at the family photo from when we were all gathered at Earl's funeral.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Dear Shirmavaz, Shanta & Cyrus,

I'm so sorry to learn about your mom's death while reading THE DAILY HAMPSHIRE GAZETTE. Having lost both of my parents within the last four years, I am well aware of the huge hole your mom left behind in all your lives and in the community as a whole. She will be sorely missed.

I haven't lived in the Northampton area for the last 10 years, but I remember fondly the years Shanta, Cy and I were in school together at the Smith College Campus School and Williston. I hope our paths will cross again when my husband and I move back up to western MA for good in a little over a year from now.

Wishing you and yours comfort and peace in days ahead and always.

Love,
Jennifer (Carpenter) Reid
