Memories of Shona

From Miriam Shadis

I don't remember when I first met Shona; I had read her work, and seen her give some (fabulous!) papers -- but I do remember one particularly rewarding and fun evening, perhaps about 6 or 7 years ago, at dinner at a conference in Philadelphia with Monica Green. We talked about everything, but mostly about our kids, and our work, and how it all intersected. I was so inspired by her! And I loved hearing about her children -- they must know their mother loved them so much and was so proud of them. She and I corresponded last fall, making tentative plans to do something in the future... I so looked forward to getting to know her better. I just came back from Kalamazoo, where there was a lot of sadness about Shona's death but a lot of joy in memory of her. She had a beautiful, fabulous smile, and it's hard not to smile thinking about it. My sincere, heartfelt condolences to Randy, Shane, Alina, Maggi, and all who loved her.
