The world has lost a treasure.She was a "Great Lady" in the very best sense of the idea; courageous, unwavering, generous and loyal. A formidable woman with a heart of gold and a rapier wit. I was honored to have met her. She left the world a better place for her having been here.
My heartfelt sympathy to her friends and family.
In loving memory,

Throughout her life Tish was a very very generous friend. We met in Rome when she was attached to the American embassy working with Clare Boothe Luce and I was working at CARE, Inc. earning a local salary of $100 a month. She would pick me up in her car when driving to the beach, invite me to dine in her apartment, and include me in functions at the embassy. When we both returned to the US and I became a free-lance photographer who was taking pictures of families Tish who was a devout Catholic sent letters to her friends with large families suggesting they hire me because my photographs were "poetry." When she married Bob Hollensteiner and moved to Chicago she invited me to stay with her while I photographed in that city. When she was was in the white House she gave me and a friend an insider's tour. When she opened her public relations business in NYC she hired me to photograph for her again. All of this for a friend she met in Rome in 1954. While she was often in pain Tish never complained but continued to cheer up her friends.

I would like to thank Ms. Baldrige for all her wonderful books, several of which I own, and for the guidance she gave me years ago when I needed to write a joint condolence/congratulatory note.

Her books are wonderful reads and I continue to treasure them all. Thank you, Tish! I will continue to commend your books and your style to all of my friends in the Baha'i community.

In closing, an excerpt from a prayer for the departed, from the Baha'i Faith:

Robe her in the mantle of Thy grace, bright with the ornaments of the celestial Paradise, and, sheltering her beneath the tree of Thy oneness, illumine her face with the lights of Thy mercy and compassion.
