Although you're gone 26 years now, and today is your 67th birthday, I think of you often. Did you know that Dick passed away a couple of years ago, was cremated and his ashes strewn over San Francisco Bay? Happy Birthday in Heaven, my dear friend Isobel.

Isobel, here it is the anniversary of the eve of your death in 1973. I think of you often and only wish you could have lived longer -- you were so vital to this world (and especially to New York!). I do wish your daughter would pay a visit to you and not be mad at me for my choice of words and picture. Maybe one day....
