    Libby and I didn’t know each other especially well, but I will remember her from the occasions when I sang at Tamarisk Assisted Living. She was highly complimentary of our passable voices and engaged my singing partner and myself in delightful conversations about vocal music which included her own experiences learning from a maestro. She was an intelligent and charming person who, I’m sure, will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
