When I think Marina, I think “Mother”. Marina has such a huge capacity for empathy, sympathy and just love. And there is enough not just for her immediate family, but somehow for all humanity. It is her thoughtfulness which never fails to amaze me. Some years ago we had serious concerns about the health of my daughter-in-law. Whenever we meet, Marina will ask after Lisa’s health – by name! Considering the incredibly busy life she leads, I find this quite remarkable and somehow typical of the sort of remarkable human being Marina is.
