Homage to Daphne
Mon, 12-26-2011 - 8:27pm

I met Daphne through a real estate transaction a few years ago. She was in her late 70s or perhaps early 80s then. She was sweet, stooped, slight and sensitive. Within an hour of meeting, we found out we'd both raised our children alone; divorced men who drank and who then became deadbeat dads; and had built our respective careers to care for these children.

That's a sweet story, Marina. I can only hope that when I get old, I'll have someone like you around to watch over me.
