My deepest sympathies to the Smith family . I have such nice memories of visiting with Donna at the house and always feeling so welcome. Edna was a lovely lady who I am sure has left you all a legacy of wonderful memories.
She made a wonderful contribution to the history of Hunts Point through her long legacy and generational memories. Her interview will be a most significant part of my masters thesis: “Atlantic Parlour Culture: Loci of Power”, Saint Mary’s University, 2014.
Her manner was remarkable in her abiding interest and love for her community, her devotion and pride in her family, her charming wit and passion for discussion.
I was awed in her presence and still remain so in her memory.
