Not sure what to say?

I loved Dani, but was too immature to realize how special she was. I last saw her on 5 May 1973, the day my Dad died. Although we promised each other to stay in touch, real life led us down unforeseen paths. I am deeply saddened by her death.

My condolences to the family of Doctor Dani Goldwater. I worked with Dani for many years at NASA Ames and respected the work and accomplishments she made to the NASA family and to the entire country. Dani will always be remembered as a friendly and warm member of our NASA family. RIP
