Last time I was with Marina, it was at the CCJ conference, where I was one of the speakers, and had arranged to pop in to spend some time with Marina in the early afternoon. It was my folly to have had lunch at the centre before
I went over to Marina’s for 2.00 pm, as she had laid on a beautiful lunch for me! We had a wonderful conversation, which of course culminated in a tour of her beautifully abundant spring garden.
I will never forget Marina’s care and kindness towards me when my husband Tony passed away in 2006.
I am sure many have referred in their letters to how proud she was of her family and all your achievements, as well as those of your children. This very sad time has given you an opportunity to show how proud you were of her, albeit a very unwelcome one. Marina was a very special and unforgettable woman, loved and respected by so many. Her life and mission were truly honorable.
I for one will miss her enormously.
