Nancy, I trust you are doing well, and are as always analyzing and interpreting what you see for the greater good.

Once in a while I remember our growing up together, mostly competing and challenging each other, yet experimenting with our personal relationship all along the way.  

While it did not work out BETWEEN us, I believe that it did work out FOR us and perhaps for the world.

I for one appreciated and expanded because of it.

So be patient, and look forward to a reuniting one of these days.

Just now I felt the urge to retrace some of Nancy's steps, out of respect and affection

She passed on May 17, 1991

Apparently she had graduated from Harvard Medical School (I assume with an MD degree) in 1974 

Although she never spoke of it, her father was a Nobel Laureate, credited with stopping polio!

I will locate and share his bio

Here is a link to the obituary on Nancy's father, who no doubt inspired her life yet was also a challenge.

I met him only once and briefly, at their house near the Charles River in Needham, when I was picking Nancy up for the Senior Prom.

Thank you Jackie (that is what I remember us calling you at High Rock) for the beautiful remembrance of Nancy. She was a cut above, so smart, so poised, so friendly. I recall a picture of several of us from HIgh Rock School lifting our sleeves in readiness for the polio vaccine, which of course her father help create. If I can find it again, I will post it.

I recall her also in sports, field hockey in particular, and yesterday as I was roaming through the year book I saw her picture in the team line up.

We always knew she would do great things. It is a pity that she is gone too early.
