So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have such great memories of you and her coming to violin lessons (you, sometimes reluctantly) and her most amazing patience with teenage shenanigans. Love to hear from you sometime. Susan Astroff

Dear Maya,
I am so very, very sorry for your mom’s passing. She was such a special friend to me, especially while living in Tyler. I felt an instant connection with her when we first met at a UT Tyler gathering.
I have fond memories of our traditional Thanksgiving get-togethers. I’d always hoped she would be able to come visit us in San Diego.
My condolences and love to you...
