I felt so privileged to meet this LOVELY, gracious woman in the early 90's when we both were waiting late at night for a flight connection. It was back east, and she was on her way to Indiana. I was working as an engineer in DC, and dancing in a ballet company too, traveling home to Seattle every month. I am an opera lover, and am very involved at Seattle Opera, and was THRILLED to hear Ms. Williams talk about her career. She so reminded me of my beautiful elegant mother - the grace and culture in that generation, that seems to have disappeared. What a beautiful human being she was, whom I was so fortunate to meet, and share some interesting time with. Thank you dear, Ms. Williams.
