I mourn the loss of my lifelong friend, who I met for the first time in Rio in 1946. I have always admired Liana's accomplishments. In midlife, Liana attended decorating school, and decorated my apartment. Whenever I am in my living room or dining room, I think of her. Liana was extremely discreet. I confided all my problems in her, valued her insight, and knew she would keep my confidences inviolate. I have lost a loyal, devoted friend, whom I will miss terribly. My sympathies to Lester, Liana's devoted and loving husband. With love, Ria Gruss
