Re: [Emeriti-faculty] [Fwd: Leon's mom]

Thanks Joelle:
I did not get your e-mail until this morning. I forwarded it to the department. My prayers are with you all. I know how hard this is even when it is expected. Professor Gunther and I talked a lot as I lost my beloved mother-in-law a few years ago. You are never prepared for these things.

Hi Gayle,
I am sending you the information (below) about Leon's mother and our mourning period. I don't know if anyone would be interested, but thought it would be good to have available for people.

Leon is doing as well as can be expected - death is so final, even when expected. She was a grand, strong lady and we miss her dearly.
(Leon's wife)

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of Esther Gunther
Wand, mother -in-law of Joelle Gunther. Ms. Gunther Wand passed away Thursday morning.
