I am so sad to hear that the world has lost this gentle, determined and beautiful woman, Marina Smith. Doing some work with the wonderful Aegis I arrived with my daughter Niña at her home to be greeted like a family member. There was a magnificent afternoon tea, a tour of the delightful English garden with a focus on her special roses and a perusal of all the books about Aegis, her travels and family albums. She was very interested in my mixed Jewish/ Christian family with the incredible tributes her family has made to both religions. From then on we kept in touch and she took close interest in each of my family members. There are only a few people you meet in life who make this kind of impact.
Sending so much love to Eddie, Stephen, James and family – what a woman
