Vivian Connell passed away today in the presence of her loving family.

If you are a regular reader of the blog, you know that Vivian Connell was a teacher, a lawyer, a lawyer who returned to teaching, a woman who learned she had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), a woman who faced her death with courage and dignity.

Several of her posts appeared here. See here and here and hereand here and hereand here and here.

I want to share a small part of this wonderful woman with everyone I know.

Deepest condolences to her husband and children, who loved her so.

Sorrow for the world to lose such a beautiful person.
