Memories of Shona

From Jutta Sperling

I'm incredibly sad to loose such a good friend. Shona has been a warm presence in my life from the day we met -- I still remember how she walked up to me at the American Academy of Rome one day to introduce herself to me, showing me pictures of her children. We stayed in touch over conferences, house visits, and, last not least, through a collection of essays we edited together. Our work relationship was always also a very personal one; she helped me a lot when I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, taking over most of the copy-editing on our book, and offering time to talk. I now wonder whether I ever supported her enough when she went through hard times ... I wish I could have had the chance to tell her how much our friendship meant to me.
