Dear Jim, While I did not enjoy the privilege of meeting Lind, her obituary tells me volumes about the creative and kind person she shall remain in people's hearts. My own breaks for you, and I know the strength and love of family and many friends shall carry you gently on angel's wings through this wrenching time. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. With very deepest sympathy, Elizabeth Greene Waller 30 October 2021
