what a blessing for you all to have had such an enthusiastic and well-respected advocate and educator in your group! I am sure she touched many lives outside as well. it's always hard for anyone to fill their shoes, and I'm sure she will be missed.
I'm going to be heading to my monthly gluten-free meeting soon. It is going to be a sad meeting because our greatest local advocate died this week. A local female physician was very active in our group because her granddaughter was diagnosed with celiac disease a few years ago. This woman was very kind and interesting. She educated herself on celiac disease and was probably the best informed doctor in town - even better than the GI docs. Just the fact that she was a 75 year-old female physician was impressive to me! Her family is asking for donations to our group in her name. She is making a difference even after her passing.
