Memories of Shona

From Derek Neal

Memory of Shona: conferences

I remember Shona's kindness and interest very well from the one occasion that we spent some time together, the 2010 MAMA conference at Conception Abbey, for which she recruited me. Shona waited at the Kansas City airport until I arrived on a delayed flight and then drove me and another attendee to the abbey. (At a junction in the road where a road sign indicated "Conception" was to the right, I wondered aloud what lay in the other direction, to which Shona replied "Contraception"!). After the conference Shona drove me back to Kansas City and gave me excellent ideas on how to spend my one evening in town. I am very sorry that I didn't have the chance to know this lovely person better, and my sympathies go out to her family and other friends.
