She had class, a sharp wit, a great sense of humor, a unique style, eclectic personality, amazing blue eyes and a liberal view. She was an extremely talented and creative lady. She loved her family and friends, great books, British television, gardening, a good cocktail and her adopted hometown of Nyack, NY.
