I am so very heartbroken to hear this shocking, surprising news (which I discovered by CHANCE, only now). Mary-Ellen was my friend and informative news source on dance in Ithaca and much of Upstate NY, for almost as long as I can remember. She was a strong woman devoted to her husband, and ever nurturing to her children. Mary-Ellen was wise, and yet; she always had that wry sense of humor, and a way of seeing the good in everything and everyone. And more, Mary-Ellen was an astute business woman, who knew how to weather economic downturns with ease. On so many levels, I respect what she gave to Ithaca, and even more so because she did everything with a joy for life, graciously tolerating (and teaching) those who still had much to learn. With a warm and generous heart, Mary-Ellen made Ithaca a much better place—a place that exemplified the best of humanity. I will miss my friend very much. I am very sorry no one told me of her cancer relapse. I know she will be missed dearly by all. My sincere condolences to all friends and family.

Thank you, Michael, for sharing your beautiful message, in this hard season.Yet when I ask myself what Em would want, the answer is clear. Love more. Tell more truth. Be determined in your fulfillment. Hug yourselves, each other and your animals. Demand your rights. Continue on in the joy and creativity of your gift of life.
Close and loving thoughts and memories of my beautiful Zizzi nephews
and nieces go out to you, and to David, Michael and Samantha, in this new year.

My heart breaks for you Davy, this the day that you met your wife. Going through the holidays without her after over 30 years had to be so sad. Hoping that your son and daughter are around you to help you during this difficult time. Most people post their thoughts when you lose someone, but forget the hard times that come after. Thinking of you and your family.
