    As a fellow member of the PS duPont HS Class of 1952 (and NOT 1951as stated in the obit), I only knew Beryl slightly back then, but I clearly remembered her vivacity as a classmate in a semester-long special psychology group. Much more recently, during the past 10 years or so during her Florida time, we became close email buddies. I mourn her passing greatly and may she be Resting in Peace.

      Thank you for your kind note & memories of Mom. I remember her telling me about her e-mail buddy!

    I was very saddened to read of your mother’s passing, Colleen. She was the most vibrant and spark-
    ling woman I ever knew. Never saw without a twinkle in her eye and fun on her mind. She made quite a few of my years @ AIDI more fun!!! Prayers and blessing to you and your families. Leni from ACC, AIDI
