I have many memories of Natalie Smulyan. Childhood memories,funny memories and those memories taking our friendship beyond my childhood years. There are far too many to begin documenting here yet this is the first unpleasant memory of her. When I heard she passed the first thing that came to my mind was the look of joy in my daughters eyes when she gave her a teddy bear from her personal collection. I guess I missed the chance to tell her how I felt. My bad, so let me say now that I loved her and know that I am not alone. My condolences to her loved ones may she rest in peace.
