Letter from Fagi Levinson, Joan's Mother and Richard's Mother-In-Law

From the first time when I met Rosemary, I felt a deep kinship and closeness to her.  It was love, but also a strong compatibiilty.  Although we lived oceans apart, our opinions were identical and our philosophies meshed.  

Rosemary had many trials in her life, the greatest was the death of Jane.  Victor's absorbtion with his career deprived her of much needed support, emotionally and during the year of her Parksinson's disease, it deprived her of physical support.  What amazed me that all this did not sour her.  She was a great icon of strenght.

Her marriage to Peter was a great consolation and pleasure to her as well as family and friends.
