My deepest sympathies to Gordon, and family. I always looked forward to my visits with Ann and Gordon whenever I was on the coast. From our first meetups in the Reading Courses that McGill offered on the coast in 1977 until very recently, we were in touch. She will forever be in the hearts of all who knew her and I will cherish the memory of our visits whether on the coast or in Montreal. May her memory be a blessing.
